The Historic Savonarola Chair
Historical hand-carved furniture replica from the Renaissance
Our classic 15th-century scissor chair was named after the charismatic Dominican monk Girolamo Savonarola. Once, only the most wealthy could afford an exquisite, hand-carved chair with the scissor-like principle that allowed it to be folded and easily moved. Our exclusive historical replica is true to the original design, with 16 ribbed, serpentine, cross-strut legs, hand-cut from solid teak, and a bas-relief profile of Savonarola carved into the backrest.
21"Wx21"Dx37"H. 30 lbs.
Was: $599.00
Now: $449.00
The Savonarola Chair is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "you get what you pay for" ...and the Savonarola chair is worth every dollar I paid for. This chair is well made and is sturdy. Where can I find such a historical and unique chair type and made of teak, other than here? I have bought many furniture pieces here as can be told by all the reviews I have submitted. I am very pleased with this chair and all of the other furniture I have bought from Toscano.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone is intrigued! I purchased two of these chairs on this site a few years ago and I love how they compliment my castle style decor and of course the quality and work put into them. Everyone is intrigued by my scissor chairs...even my sister who is into contemporary decor wants them!!! Worth the price :)
