This Birds hand-painted vintage chair features a beautiful rich faux wood finish using Burnt Sienna to create a fabulous background upon which Lea Davis has  block painted carbon black sections pinstriped in grey.  Colourful naive folk art birds, painted in traditional colours of Oxblood, True Ochre, Chrome Green and Williamsburg Blue are dancing around the tree of life.   The branches wind amongst the birds and is repeated on the chair back.  Birds are messages from heaven and are significant in naive works. 

The seat is upholstered in material with a brick red and cream and diamond shaped pattern.  A plush pom pom braid finishes the seat perfectly

Three coats of polyurethane varnish were finally applied. 

The Birds, Hand-painted Vintage Chair was a market find and is around 70 years old, making this an irresistible piece of vintage painted furniture.
