Spanish "Estrado" or Slipper Chair

Spain
18th Century
Cm 55 high x 41 wide x 37 deep

This 18th century Spanish "Silla de Estrado" is related to the more well-known slipper chair, as it was used specifically by women. The Spanish "estrado" (which translates as "platform" or "dias") was a raised, carpeted area in 16th-18th century homes where women would spend time socializing, sewing, writing letters or eating together. This small-sized chair would have been part of the furnishings of a typical estrado. Its turned wood furniture, stylish new upholstery and metal detailing make for a great accent piece. The front legs have casters for ease of movement.
