Favourite Item
Spectacular French 16th Century Oak Throne Chair back of great presence. It is monumental in size, and carved with immense quality, depicting an Eagle holding a scroll, the “Word”, in its beak, and with a Peacock tail plume above it. This is clearly an allegory for the resurrection signified by the connotations of the St Augustine story relating to the Peacock and the belief in being saved on the “day of judgement” being achievable by devotion to the bible, that is to say, the word of God
