Additional Information

Notes historical bibliographic:
This group of chairs from music, from a Tuscan villa, is a rarity in the modern and unusual design made clear from a local production following the canons of the first Empire. However, the presence of particular interest, not only to arouse aesthetic Napoleonic but also historical, these furnishings. The Eagle with the Imperial Crown, resting on the lightning quiver was the emblem chosen by the Emperor and King of Italy. This clearly leads us to hypothesize that the chairs were manufactured in Tuscany for one of its dwellings or of a family member; in fact, the Napoleonic Heraldry did not allow others to use its logo. Also the care with which the symbol is done playing in leathers replaced tells us how the next owner was aware of the historical importance and documentation that the symbol was.
