Description An incredibly attractive pair of Biedermeier style side chairs, they are crafted of Birch with finely veneered crest rails of the same over fan-carved ebony stained embellishments in the splat. Probably from the last quarter of the 19th century, the surface has a beautiful burnished patina in the shellac and wax and the resulting glow is particularly effective against the golden grain flecks of the Birch wood. The slight curve of the back makes the chairs quite comfortable and the sturdiness of joints allows them to be enjoyed functionally, not simply as fine strikepoint pieces.
