Chairs for the San Francisco Opera. They are based on the original 1929 Italian chairs that sat in the boxes of the SF Opera since 1929 until recently. Years of wear took it's toll on the originals and were retired. The current chairs were made in Italy also and based on the original furniture designers drawings. The new paint and gilding are aged to look like the originals. 226 chairs to paint and took 2 months.
