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.
