Friar armchair. Leather, walnut wood. Spain, 16th century. It has faults. Armchair with arms and high back of the type known as “frailero”, which has leather with studs in the upper part of the back (missing in the seat), low cut-out profile chambranes joining the front legs with the rear ones and middle chambranes or stringers (the front one is carved and cut out, creating geometric motifs) joining the two front legs and the two rear ones, and simple armrests, with highlighted volute finishes. 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.
