It seems to be an ordinary traditional chinese chair with design dated back to Qing period. It's really hard to estimate how much it's worth.

This does not appear to have much age. Likely a modern reproduction and patinated to look older than what it is. If this was old then there should be obvious wear. I don't see any.

Thank you for your answers. :clapping:

I'm have too thinked that it is Qing period style, but I was not sure, becususe I don't have knowledge about chinese furniture.
and maybe it's only replica. I think it's not much worth.

But it's very comfortable and stable, perfect for sitting when I playing guzheng.

Its likely an antique though its been so heavily over restored that its almost hard to see anything. There seems to be a coat of stain mixed with lacquer on top which makes it much harder to judge. Wood seems to be walnut. I would bet this was restored in the south of china as that particular restoration technique is not so popular in the north. I have sold a similar set just last year. Cute and practical though not holding any particular value.
