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. The covering is an old hand woven fabric that is attractive but is very heavily worn and threadbare in areas.  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 may still remain available in the shop inventory or upon request.

Measurements: 22” W x 20 3/8” D x 37 3/4” H, 17” H to seat

Condition Report:
