A pair Emma armchairs - Rococo - Legs of walnut - 1800s

H80 W62

A emma is an upholstered armchair with high and often rounded back, often so high that it provides support for the head. The armrests are very small, which made Emman particularly suitable for the courage to wear crinoline dresses. Seat type were often variations of rococo style and upholstery, and had his breakthrough in the 1840s.
