This impressive carved walnut throne chair has a raked padded back above a stuffed over seat. The front legs, arms and arms supports are carved with theatrical 'S' and 'C'- scrolls with acanthus and bell husks. The arms are carved to the elbow with recumbent putti figures looking skyward, carved almost in the round and supported by foliate sprays. The exuberantly carved front stretcher is centred by a putti figure holding flowers , the side stretchers carved with scrolls meeting at the centre in a cartouche. The back legs of square section with scrolled feet.
The vigorous Baroque style of carving echoes the style of Andrea Brustolon (1662–1732), an important sculptor and wood carver who made furniture for many of the great Venetian Palaces. .
Italian, Circa 1890.
