The backrest of the chair features a mahogany frame flanked by twin ormolu foliate columns, and the mahogany surfaces of the backrest are mounted with classicising ormolu motifs, including profile busts, winged goddesses, and stylised vases, while the centre of the backrest features ormolu crossed arrows centred with an Apollo mask within a laurel wreath.
