1940s/50s Italian Pair of Brass Curule Stools with Scrolled Legs

Very rare elegant pair of 1940s/50s brass stools with scrolled legs newly upholstered with a green mohair fabric From Lelievre. The scrolls are ended with brass balls to achieve a Neo-classical look. The pair of stools are highly decorative and can stand alone in any room. The brass has acquired a nice patina commensurate with age. The name Curule chair comes from Latin Sella Curulis, a style of chair reserved in ancient Rome for the use of the highest government dignitaries and usually made like a campstool with curved legs.
