Syrian Armchair - Late 19th century

This Syrian armchair is richly carved with oriental motifs all over its wooden structure. On the belt of the seat, an engraved medallion receives in its center writing in Arabic calligraphy. This motif is repeated on the crossbeams, which are executed in an openwork manner in the manner of the mashrabiyya. The seat receives a burgundy cloth embroidered with white foliage and red flowers with always in the center a stylized cartouche with calligraphy. This aesthetic is reproduced on the armrests adorned with the same fabric. The back is flat and rectangular in shape. Beautifully executed and openwork, it is divided into several squares. The middle one is composed of an arch that evokes Islamic places of worship, with a sort of gilded temple figure in the centre with black calligraphic writing.
