The attractiveness of these chairs has been enhanced by the humpback stretchers under the seat and footrest. It adds a delicate touch to the chairs, imparting feminine elegance without becoming overly decorative. Given their smaller size they are likely to have been made as 'ladies chairs'. The original plum-red lacquer has aged to a beautiful patina.
