Comment: This antique French Brittany style Savonarola or Savona Rola accent chair is one of the most unusual chairs we have brought back from France for our customers in the USA. The French accent chair was crafted around the year 1920 in oak wood. It features a wonderful carving on the chair back of a merry French man who is enjoying his beverage we suspect it is a flagon of ale or the famous Brittany cider! The Savonarola or Savona Rola style of chair was developed in 15th century Italy and it is named for the Dominican friar Girolamo Savonarola, who lived in Florence during the Italian Renaissance. The original design was intended to be foldable and portable, and this created the X-shaped structure. The chairs are also sometimes called X-chairs and even though this magnificent antique example is not foldable, we suspect that Girolamo Savonarola would heartily approve of its fine craftsmanship, beautiful carvings and solid oak wood construction. The carved figure on the back of the chair would usually symbolize the owner and this feature is typical of the Savonarola type of chair, as are the slats on the seat. This magnificent antique French Brittany style Savonarola will be a wonderful talking point in your home and an excellent design accent.
