This photo shows two Renaissance style chairs made of cardboard. They have an oriental cotton fabric that creates a plush look to the back, arm rests, and seat of each chair. The seats have tassels hanging down. the back has embroidery floss fringe that hangs from the back to the seat. There are small iron or brass looking buttons on the back of the chair. The legs of the chairs make a sort of X like chromosomes, and they are decorated with fleur de lis patterns in black marker. The legs are layered in a row of four sections to keep the chairs standing upright under the weight of a seated doll (although no doll is shown). The two chairs are elegantly poised at a 45 degree angle to one another.
