Two Pairs of Baroque Carved Armchairs.

Walnut.

Italy, Venice, c. 1680.

Provenance:
Counts of Bossi Azzatesi, Castello di Azzate, Varese.
With Pelham Galleries, Paris.
Private collection, London.

The rectangular backs and seats upholstered in red damask silk and supported on square rope-twist uprights, legs and armrests, embellished at both ends of the armrests, the mid-stretchers and the feet with finely carved acanthus leaves.

The overall form of these rare and elegant museum quality armchairs is inspired by Franco-Flemish models of the baroque period, but the distinctively stylized rope-twist moulding and exuberant acanthus carving betray an unmistakable Venetian flourish.
