We are delighted to offer this exquisite 19th century Italian Venetian hand carved Grotto chair in the form of an exotic bird. The chair is pure fantasy, carved of heavy walnut woods, with a faded gilt finish supported on a silver leaf rococo base. A padded seat was added for comfort.

Grotto carved furniture is a form of Fantasy furniture created in Venice and other parts of Italy that evoke images of the sea and other mythological creatures. It has long been collected for its sensual almost humorous symbolism and for its creative form. It remains an escape from conformity and embraces the ideals of pleasure and magic.

The chair is in excellent age-related condition with some loose joints reinforced; very sturdy. The padded seat cover is stained but can be easily re-covered in the material of your choice.

Size: 30" Height by 27" Width by 19" Depth.
