Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description "Sgabello" is the Italian word for stool, and this style of chair is basically a stool with a back support. This was a common type of seating in an affluent Italian home. Chairs only started to become comfortable in the later 1600s. The chair appears to be at least partially reconstructed at a later period, possibly the in the 1800s.
