Reference: Z0667

Friar armchair. Walnut wood, textile, metal. Spain, 16th century. Has defects. Armchair with arms and high back of the type known as “frailero”, which has a textile upholstery with studs on the seat and back, low cut-out profile chambrances joining the front legs with the rear legs and middle chambrances or stringers (the front with geometric motifs in carving) joining the two front legs and the two rear ones, and simple armrests (curved, ending in volutes; the front with grooves). The friar armchair, initially of Italian origin, became one of the most common pieces of Spanish furniture since its introduction in the 16th century, being characteristic of this and the 17th century and being recovered again in the historicist current of the 19th century. Being a tradition so deeply rooted in Spain, these types of models have never stopped being created.
