Subject:Re: Chinese Horseshoe Chair... Antique, Vintage, or Reproduction?

unfortunately you're right, it's very late. The spandrels are far too long, but more importantly the seat panel is made with machine tools, you can tell this by the gap between the frame and panel. It's actually surprisingly difficult to get a Chinese cleated panel seat (or top) to fit perfectly, it's all very Taoist; ie: Made by a follower of the way, and there is only one way. Many years of devotion and practice. Just like Kung Fu, you certainly can't learn it overnight (unless you've freed yourself from the matrix, haha). So either it's from another reality in the time space continuum, or you're quite right, it's a repro.
