Folk Art Carved Eagle Chairs

About the Item

Very unusual pair of chairs, hand carved, possibly using a chainsaw as well as other blades, of a fierce looking eagle with unfurled wings, its talons on the feet of a man on all fours facing forward on his knees and elbows, with his hands seeming to cover his ears. Apparently unsigned. The wood appears to be walnut or possibly teak. The seat itself is nearly 3 inch thick round slab from a tree trunk, heavily carved with feathers and having scalloped edges. The finish is nice with a satin clear coat. Very solid and heavy ~100 pounds +/-. each. One is slightly larger than the other. The smaller of the two is 35 inches high, 24 inches wide, 22 inches deep and having 16 inches seat height. If requested we can have these silver or gold leafed by our expert gilder.

Savonarola Chairs
Located in Hanover, MA
We have three matching mid-century Italian made brass and painted wrought iron Savonarola chairs. Each chair frame is structurally sound and in its original white paint which is somewhat chippy. Upon request we can have repainted (or powder coated) the color of your choice. Original loose upholstered seat and stitched-on backrest cushions are in their original tired and distressed material; the wrought iron arms are covered in rouched sleeves. Our upholsterer can re-make or create new cushions per your specifications. Reach out to request suggestions. Should you prefer we can also cut down rear uprights to match the height of the front, eliminating the backrest as well as the arms, transforming these chairs into Dante benches or cerule stools...
