This chair is one of the first expressions of the Renaissance Revival style in the Netherlands. The furniture-maker meticulously copied a French print from 1839. His only addition was the family crest of Mr and Mrs van Voorst van Beest-Ruys, for whom he made the chair, on both the back and the embroidered seat.
