About

Pair of 19th century shovel chairs Southern Germany Walnut Biedermeier, circa 1830 Dimensions: height 91 cm, seat height 48 cm Description: Beautiful pair of walnut Biedermeier chairs. Tapered and slightly flared square legs. Wide, concave and laterally rounded shoulder rests, which remind of the shape of a shovel, hence the name "shovel chair". Ebonized struts in the back board. Condition: Restored condition. Authentic age patina. Shellac hand polish. Newly upholstered, newly covered. Worth knowing: Shovel chairs are among the most famous variations from the Biedermeier range of chair shapes. They appear from around 1825 onwards and with their rounded shoulder rests herald the departure from the strict straightforwardness of the early 19th century. Comparable objects can be found in the literature: Rainer Haaff - Biedermeierwelten from p. 212 Rainer Haaff - Biedermeier-Möbel p. 290.
