I have a beautiful, solid wood, hand carved Jimma Chair from Ethiopia.

Jimma Chairs were traditionally carved for the Wealthy and powerful such as chiefs of tribes in Ethiopia.

Later in the 20th century these were carved for export.

The chairs are phenomenal in that the entire chair-from the legs to the top of the chair-are carved from one solid tree trunk.

To carve this chair takes hundreds of work hours, and is done with crude tools.

These chairs are typically priced upwards of $1,500+

This chair is in excellent original condition.

There is one small chip in the top right arm, but it is an old break.

We waxed the entire chair in furniture wax to preserve and protect the wood and leave it's natural patina.

Dimensions of the chair are:

19.25 inches wide
18.25 inches deep
36 inches tall

*Seat height is 19.5 inches
*Arm height is 33.5 inches

Priced to go at $1,275
