Old World Spanish Furniture

by

An interesting group of Spanish furniture of the 17th Century shows a pair of arm chairs of walnut covered in a crimson damask and edged with fringe and galoon of the epoch. Above the mantel hangs a portrait oj Isabella Clara Eugenia, daughter of Philippe 11 of Spain, by Alonzo Sanches Coello. At each side are gold carved wood mirrors of beautiful workmanship. The brocatelle on the mantel is crimson in a classic design of the 16th Century.

The carved oak 16th Century chest above is backed by an l8th Century velvet with the royal arms of Portugal
in gold and multi-colored silks.

At the right is a 17th Century table with iron stretcher, on which stands an exquisite little inlaid jewel cabinet. The 16th Century wrought iron lamp bracket has a design of fleur de lis and the imperial Spanish coat of arms.

The strip of velvet over the table is Louis XIV in velour frappe maroon (a museum piece).

Spanish Chest Against a beautiful 17th Century piect of green Spanish damask stands an oak chest, lovely in the simplicity of its carving and dignity of proportion.

On it is a child’s toy chair of the same historical period – carved in pine. At each side are Spanish tiles of the 17th Century and above hangs a tile in polychrome showing a coat of arms of the l7th Century.

The painted frieze is of the 16th Century and shows the departure of the missionaries for America
