This early 20th century Chinese Deco chair from Shanghai has an unusual back paneled with a marble insert. Chinese furniture inset with stones was considered to be pleasantly cool during the hot summer months, particularly in Southern climates like Shanghai. Designs like this were influenced by the Art Deco movement in the West that was introduced to Shanghai and several other Chinese cities during the economic boom of the 1920s and 1930s.
