18TH CENTURY ITALIAN WALNUT
SGABELLO HALL CHAIR
Item # LFALO314
A wonderful 18th century Italian carved walnut Sgabello chair. The entire surface is covered with boldly carved decoration from top to bottom with the seat having an incised decorated surface. The tall back has sculptural and symbolic carvings with the top finished in a stylized crown shape symbolizing power and victory, while the pierced open work carved section allows light to enter from the rear and create a sense of depth and movement. Because these chairs were placed against the wall in the entry, they were not finished on the back.
The term "sgabello" is taken from the Italian "scanno" meaning stool. These type chairs were historically found in the entrance halls of Italian Palazzos of important aristocratic families as a show of wealth, or as a short resting place.
