Armchair, Anonymous, c. 1560 - c. 1570

wood (plant material), h 115.5cm × w 60.5cm × d 44cm. More details

Separate chairs came into general use only in the 16th century. Initially they were solid objects. This chair is a transitional type because the legs are still not directly touching the floor. They were comfortable seats for women wearing wide skirts. This is the only surviving Dutch chair of this type.
