Side chair (8) - Charles X - Textiles, Wood - 19th century

Side chair (8) - Charles X - Textiles, Wood - 19th century

Inherited in 1978. Of particular note is the hand-crafted work of the fan-shaped backrests, which are curved so as to embrace the back, the inlay work and
the carving of the lower edge make the backrest look just like an open fan. The legs are also worked in a special way, all a bit curved to give the chair a special elegance. Seats with springs inside are to be remade.
and in the lot together with the chairs there is a pure emerald green cotton fabric of the
renowned 'Tessitura di Rovezzano' weaving mill in the 18th/19th century style purchased at the time to upholster them.
