This type of elegant chair made from a fine walnut wood appears during the late sixteenth century.
Its wide and low seat stands on four feet linked by an H-shaped spacer and a crossbar for the facade. While the feet and spacers were plain during the previous reigns they are now turn-made. The backrest is low, a characteristic of the period.
Those chairs present a great interest especially because of the unity of the wood-turning and of the skills the wood-turners applied to the making of the balusters.
