The leather, presenting a tan color, is in good condition with slight signs of aging. The iron gilt base is made of a curving X shape, connected in its center with a conic finial and strengthened on the sides with stretchers. The ensemble is resting on flattened bun feet echoing in reverse the upper section. With its golden tones and antique inspiration, this vintage Italian Savonarola curule chair will make for a great accentuation in any home, whether placed in a living room or foyer.
