A Large Pair Of 19th Century Portuguese Leather & Rosewood Chairs
A fabulous looking pair of large Portuguese side chairs. Made from rosewood and with heavily embossed leather backs and seats, the chairs have bold cabriole legs with claw & ball feet. During the 18th century, Portuguese furniture often incorporated earlier English themes such as the claw & ball foot. They however preferred to use rosewood rather than walnut, as is the case with these chairs. The leather is in excellent order and the frames are tight.
