A child's size, early 20th century (1920s) cane backed chair with elaborate gilt lackered decoration. The chair has a solid wooden seat possibly made from beech and four turned wooden legs which have curved stretchers on the front and sides. The back legs have a straight stretcher. The back and arms are constructed from six upright pieces of wicker or cane and woven around these are thinner pieces of wicker in a cross-cross pattern. A piece of wicker from the left arm is missing.
