This mythological Norse-like figure is a common characteristic of a style of furniture commonly called “North Wind” Chairs. This type of furniture was popularized in the 19th and early 20th century often depicting the wind god Aeolus carved into the backrest of a chair. Typically the images would depict him either stoic or blowing wind in a “grotesque” manner.

This type of imagery was part of the Greek and Renaissance Revival furniture movements. The Greek style, which happened in both Europe and America, would put images of Greek gods on furniture with curved legs and dark ebonized wood. The Renaissance Revival style would try to mimic 16th century designs using mahogany and walnut woods while having high relief carvings of flowers or classic figures to reflect the high style of the renaissance period.
