This rather dramatic high-backed side chair has a rosewood frame, with wonderful leather seat and back with all-over high relief embossing, the leather attached to the frame with large brass dome-head nails. It is a masterpiece of the leatherworker's craft. The central roundel on the chair back is of the goddess Flora, holding a bloom and a fan, surrounded by scrolling foliage and exotic flowers, birds and a supporting pair of winged cherubs. The seat has similar motifs and the leather, particularly on the chair back, is burnished to a deep, rich colour. Portuguese, late 17th century. Height 52 1/4" (132.8cm) Width (seat front 19 3/4" (50.2cm) Depth (of seat) 17" (43.2cm)
