Here we have an incredible pair of Venetian Baroque Style part ebonized, I think, walnut armchairs in the manner of Andrea Brustolon. They are carved oak figural arm chairs with fully formed moor figures supported tree branch form arm rests, with a carved oak leaf and tree branch foliate stretcher base. They were reupholstered about 30 years ago or so with a dyed pattern cow skin to look like tiger, with arm rests modeled as branches with recumbent infants, raised on blackamoor-form supports joined by a naturalistic formed x stretcher carved as gnarled tree branches, with further supports of putti and moors measuring about 50.5" tall - 37.5" wide- about 28.5" deep and the seat comes up to about 22" or so. They are pretty big in size compared to a regular chair- but what a statement they make!

These are from a fantastic San Diego estate of an elderly couple downsizing from a 6000 square foot home. Some of the things in this home were things you would only see at a museum. The elderly lady told me the chairs were well taken care of (as you can see) and that they were mid 19th century. I am going to say they are late 19th to very early 20th century just to be sure. They are in excellent condition with some nicks and wear to polychrome paint and a couple of slight age cracks on an arm and fading on one of the cow-skins but overall condition is fantastic for their age. These will have to ship freight. I have used Plycon several time and have been quite pleased.
