Description A remarkable pair of oak and walnut hall chairs after the Italian Renaissance designs which were adapted by the English in the early 18th century. This form of decorative stool was simply constructed of planks though frequently deeply carved and decorated frequently with he coats of arms of the patrons. The pair offered here relies on an exquisite silhouette and planar elegance to create their strikingly beautiful form. The restraint and dignity of the chairs marks them as appropriate to a wide array of traditional and modern aesthetics. Possibly reconstructed of older elements in the 19th century, England, circa 1720.
