The classic shield back form is enhanced with shell, scroll and leaf carvings. The back frame and decorative wood back splat are curved to fit the body. Applied leaf carvings and fancy face veneers adorn both the front and back side of this chair. The seats are shaped and tailored for comfort and grace. The consistent decorative motifs allow this chair to work well with either dining table. The finish is a rich and warm pomegranate shade that has both depth and clarity which allows the natural beauty of the wood graining to shine through. Burnished edges, hand rubbed fronts and machine rubbed tops provide a satiny glow that enriches the Old World feel of this collection.
