The traditional bridal sedan chair has an exquisite shape and gorgeous decoration. It is often painted with lacquer and decorated with gold foil decals, it is carved with delicate patterns. Inside the sedan, it is luxuriously decorated with red silk satin, embroidered with the words of marriage and happiness, dragon and phoenix, which means sweet love and happy life. The bridal sedan chair has been a traditional Chinese wedding vehicle for thousands of years, which women can only sit once in a lifetime.
This model looks great displayed on its own, or alongside other models from our Chinese Tradition range – particularly the Ming Dynasty Wedding Dress. The kit contains 288 pieces – pre-coloured brass and stainless steel – and builds to 20.8(l) x 10.5(w) x 15cm (h). Fully illustrated step-by-step instructions are included.
