AUSTRIAN BIEDERMEIER FRUITWOOD PARCEL EBONIZED SETTEE
Circa early 19th century
Item # 803CIV07
A fine 19th century Biedermeier period settee with pierced splat arms and early black upholstery. It is crafted out of solid fruitwood with a chaotic veneering in the vertical grain along the crest rail and parcel ebonized highlights that meld beautifully against the dark covering. The piece is raised over tapered legs with tenon-mortised joints, the rolled bolster pillows perfectly complimenting the outward splat of the arms.
Measurements: 54 1/2” W x 23 3/4” D x 35 3/4” H, 17 1/2” H to seat
Old breaks to pierced splat in proper left arm, these repaired but remain fragile. Surface wear and distressing; a few chip losses and veneer losses here and there. Old upholstery remaining in very good overall condition. Comfortable and sturdy (other than the splat, which should be shown care).
