Sculptural frame with slightly curved butterfly-shaped upholstered backrest, upholstered seat suspended on the pointed corner supports of the underlying x-shaped frame, and tapering legs.  This particular model is rare, well-documented, and more sculptural with generous proportions than the more simple versions of this chair.  Fully restored and newly upholstered in an antiqued blue velvet.
