Antique French Louis XV Carved Arm Chair
ROCOCO REVIVAL CARVED WALNUT ARM CHAIR
Continental, circa late 19th century
Item # 709RFV15-1
This beautiful arm chair is clearly a creation of the Rococo Revival movement from the second half of the 19th century, a crisply carved chair heavily influenced by the Louis XV period with its undulating lines and Rococo motif. It retains an old finish in the rich patinated walnut wood throughout with a delightful glow where handling has burnished the finish into a warmer cognac hue. Naturally it requires full reupholstery. It is raised over four cabriole legs and a well carved apron with foliage curling around a rocaille form at the center. An X-form stretcher locks the four legs firmly in place. It is a fine accent piece that we acquired as part of a set of four chairs - some of these other chairs (each of which retains full original upholstery) may still remain available in the shop inventory or upon request.

Old surface with light wear, some chipping and cracks here and there throughout. Repaired crack to one arm. Must be reupholstered. Sturdy and quite comfortable.
