SOLD 1940s Ebonized Walnut Swiveling Stool or Vanity Chair with Lyre Detail

3,475.00

This whimsical stool or vanity chair was realized in America, circa 1940. A stylized lyre, with brass spindles, forms the back of the chair. The apron that supports the dove gray mohair seat features stylized floral details and a reeded design. This incised geometric pattern in the apron recurs throughout the ebonized walnut body, including in the seat's stiles that culminate in a scroll form at their apex. Additionally, the chairs have cabriole legs with a rhombus shelf with convex sides approaching the feet. This is a fine example of 1940s neoclassical design in America. It represents a perfect accent piece and would be equally well suited as a stool or vanity chair. It features a newly upholstered mohair seat and has been restored to mint condition.
