Typically carved from a single piece of hard wood, the form of this chair features three angulated supporting legs, adorned with a series of simple linear decorations. These decorations continue onto the seat and the rear of the backrest, as shown in the photos.
The backrest is slightly curved in form and features a wonderful rich and shiny patina. Traditional decorations feature around the edge of the seat and at the top of the back support.
