Description

Typical of the Italian Renaissance with carved Florentine backs and lion head arm tips these walnut Savonarola chairs are nothing short of fabulous! This pair created in the 20th century, most likely 1960s – 1970s, are in perfect condition. The Savonarola chair is a type of folding chair with an X frame when viewed from the front or back. It was designed to fold so it was portable and used during campaigns or other outdoor pursuits. The title Savonarola comes from the name of Italian Renaissance Dominican friar, Girolamo Savonarola, who is renowned for his clash with tyrannical rulers and corrupt clergy. To fold this interestingly beautiful chair you must first remove the back rail which simply slides upward out of slots in the arms, then push the arms together to fold. This pair would make perfect hallway or entryway chairs. You need to make them yours.
