Horseshoe-chair

The term 'horseshoe chair' can be used either to refer to a chair made out of metal horse shoes, or to refer to the traditional chair design originating in China during the Ming Dynasty about 500 years ago. The chairs featured on this page are of the former type.

We are not associated with the designers or providers of these chairs and consequently cannot provide you with any information on them and certainly cannot sell them. However, under each photo we provide the origin, if you should wish more information.

Comment: Rocking chair, where the rocker is actually horseshoes welded in a curve, rather than the more common method of welding on a curved piece of metal. The back includes what appears to be a 3-leaf clover, but would perhaps be even nicer with a lucky 4-leaf clover.

 

 

Comment: Simple, elegant and available for sale.
