Impressive Venetian pomp armchair - around 1730 Workshop of Andrea Brustolon (1662-1732)




Christian Eduard Franke-Landwers Christoph Freiherr von Seckendorff


Around 1730

Workshop of Andrea Brustolon (1662-1732).

Wood, carved, with rests of its original frame and its original cushioning of purple, shaven silk velvet.

The representative throne is all-over richly and partly broken carved in strong moving lines and engraved with rocailles, shells, leaves and chased details.

The highly swung, cartridge-shaped backrest ends in a pompous, plastic crowning with rocaille-framed shield, therein crown and sword.

It cannot be proven, whether the armchair had been produced for the highest judge or a doge of the Venetian Republic.

Height 156 cm, sitting height 52 cm, width 92 cm, depth 60 cm.
