Pair of Crown Hall Chairs
The isolation from urban centers in the provinces, and scarcity of information regarding the latest decorative innovations, resulted in the reinterpretation and reinvention of earlier tastes introduced to the Andes.
This pair of chairs, from the late 19th century, are facsimiles of models from 200 years prior. The backs are left decorated as to be used in a hall or arcade situation – against the wall, as opposed to that of the contemporary parlor furniture layout, with drawers for storage.
This is set off by a strange fan decoration as a crown, in a primitive folk execution, that is less Robert Adam and more Medieval in character.
- Spanish Colonial
- Aliso wood
- Condition: Very good and appropriate for age
- Green painted and gold leaf with large drawer at bottom of each chair
