PAIR OF BIEDERMEIER PARCEL EBONIZED WALNUT ARM CHAIRS
Austro-Hungarian Empire circa 1825
Item # 704MQT06P 


This exceptional pair of Biedermeier tub chairs make an incredibly powerful presentation with their unique and robust form.  The exaggerated hoop of the back is faceted in a complex manner that allows the flat of the arm to taper into a sharp edge around the crest, the vertical edge of the arm slowly curving backward into the comfortable sloped crest rail that frames the upholstery.  Carefully selected walnut veneers dress the surfaces beautifully, the vertical lay of the grain creating a sense of symmetry and flow from one element to the next.  Particularly interesting are the strong ebonized columns that raise either arm; these dowel into the footing and handrest above.  Thin ebonized shoes beneath each foot bring harmony by balancing the use of ebony in the columns.  Both chairs were recovered at some point in the last decade with a high quality tweed upholstery that remains serviceable.  Incredibly comfortable, this is a pair of chairs that absolutely defines a room with their strength of form and powerful presence.

Measurements:  31” W x 27 1/2” D x 34 5/8” H; 15 1/2” H to seat

Condition Report:
Covering in "good" condition, one seat with a stain and some minor discolorations.  Veneer chips in a few areas (along aprons, at arms), some loss to ebony paint on columns.  Some cracking and abrasion to the veneers.  Very strudy, strong and comfortable.
