Chair made of chestnut, with tooled leather back and seat secured by large studs. The legs and stretchers are turned, the front stretcher being decorated with scrolls. The feet are of the Spanish foot or Braganza foot type showing its peninsular origin. The technical progress of this period is seen in the decoration of the leather, the most common compostion being shown here. Reminiscent of oriental embroidery patterns, the curvilinear arched back with brass finials presents an ‘albarrada’ placed on a chequered field and supported by two putti, a motif characteristic of the Portuguese style and regularly found in ‘azulejos’.
