Friar armchair. Walnut wood, leather. Spain, 16th century. Armchair with arms and high back of the type known as “frailero”, which has leather with studs on the seat and upper part of the back, very low chambrances joining the front legs with the rear ones and middle chambrances or stringers (the front one is carved with a relief of floral motifs flanking an empty heraldic shield in tondo) joining the two front legs and the two rear ones, and simple armrests, with the fluted fronts following architectural influences. 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. Requires restoration.
