Chair

Gurage/Ambo, Ethiopia

Chair. Gurage/Ambo, Ethiopia

 

It is possible this Gurage or Ambo chair from Ethiopia was inspired by early European examples. The surface of the chair exhibits a lovely, lusty patina, and the backrest is adorned with engraved zig-zag and linear decorations.

A single arm support on the left-hand side of the chair - which would have kept the right hand free - are typically found on similar style chairs from this area of Ethiopia. The reason for this feature is unknown.

 

Estimated Period: Early 20th Century

H (From Floor to Base of Seat): 36cm
