18th Century Seating

The chestnut or walnut framed settee from the mid 18th Century. The original leather can still be found on many examples.

The scroll arm terminals resembles the interior of a land snail shell, and lent its Maltese name to the group of settees with this motif – tal-bebbuxu.

The four frontal legs are necessary supports for the rather long front rail and emerge tastefully from the undulating aprons on the front.
