19TH C. BURMESE HEAD MONK'S CHAIR
Every temple in Burma (and Thailand, too) has a chair like this, from which the head monk reads the sutras and gives interpretations to the congregation. It is huge and elaborate -wood with lacquer and inlaid glass. Green panel is old figured glass. Dimensions are 74" high, 48" wide at the front base, 39" wide at the back base, and 42" deep. This is just a wonderful piece, and in great condition, but you need a large room in order to display it. The back is removable for shipping. Dexter and Squink (underneath) not included.
