William Spratling’s wood and leather “Butaque” Chair. With scoop seat of tanned leather secured by hand-hammered tacks, over low, curule legs attached by front and rear stretchers. This chair was part of a set of 2 chairs and a table designed by Spratling for Samuel Moxley, for whom Spratling briefly worked designing silver for the Conquistador, S.A. silver manufactory in Mexico City. Mr. Moxley had the furniture shipped to his home in Indiana in the early 1950’s.
