Medium High-Backed Chair

Gurage, Ethiopia 

High-Backed Chair. Gurage Culture, Ethiopia

This fine Gurage high-backed chair, consisting of three supporting legs, exhibits lovely form and balance. The chair’s backrest features an intricately carved cross-hatch design. 

High-backed chairs figure prominently in the installation of chiefs among the Gurage and related groups in Southern Ethiopia. These chairs were also used during meetings by the Gurage council of elders, as symbols of rank and entitlement.

This Gurage chair is in good condition, and exhibits a lovely shiny patina. 

Estimated Period: 19th Century
