What is this?
Formed as a slatted back rest fanning out with spindles that resemble peacock feathers framed by a rounded crest rail ending in a rope cord seat. The legs of the chair splay out slightly and are connected by a stretcher. Below the seat, two sticks rise up and are continued above by the arm support, where these two elements meet at an acute angle through the arm rests.
