Century Cherub Putti Angels to the base of floral wrapped pillars. Never again will these chairs be seen listed for sale; they were custom made around 160 years ago using early 18. The feet make up Cherub Putti heads, the pillared arms are roman looking Columns fruit wood carved with flowers and grapes and other foliage, these are the only chairs of their type in the world and should be considered art furniture. The chairs are a rare model, they are fully sprung, what that means is the arms, back rest and seat base are all sprung, additionally the front panel is sprung, this is super rare, the front panel is the bar that sits across the front under the break of your knee, this is usually a solid piece of timber, to have it made fully sprung is very expensive however it adds a new level of comfort to the piece.The springs are all the highest grade of copper, not standard steel which can rust and break.
