Pair of 18th century Venetian Throne Chairs. These two throne chairs show their original paint, gilt and silver leaf decoration. Their style is Venetian Baroque with mystical animal carvings and fine scroll carving. The cane-backs are original and the cushions are Italian silk velvet. They were used in the Foyer of the Mabel Swift Moore Mansion in Washington, D.C. Exquisite, very rare pair.
