A stunning and rare pair of mid Century Italian Chiavari (Banquet) chairs in heavy brass. These chairs was created in 1807 by a cabinet maker from Chiavari on the north-western Italian coast, Giuseppe Gaetano Descalzi. At the invitation of the President of the Economic Society of Chiavari, the Marquis Stefano Rivarola, Descalzi reworked some chairs in the French Empire style, simplifying the decorative elements and lightening the structural elements. They were basically born form the simplification in design of the heavily ornate French Empire chairs. These chairs would have been used in meetings, weddings, banquets etc. They retain their original upholstery in very good order for their age.
We think they are stunning dress chairs that would spark many conversations. They could be used as hall chairs, bedroom chairs, dressing table chairs, bathroom chairs etc etc. A unique style statement to really finish a space.
