Early Renaissance Arm Chair – 1460 – 1600
An Italian Renaissance piece – a combination of classical Greek with Roman design, a blend refined by Byzantine high-relief ornament. The wood is universally walnut, oiled or waxed to a deep, rich tone. While Northern European furniture is austere and simple, the Italian, like this one is based on classical proportions with repetitive geometric mouldings and romanticized carving.
