RARE EGYPTIAN REVIVAL BRONZE MOUNTED MAHOGANY TUB CHAIR
Circa 1860-80, stamped KARN under both feet
Item # 702MSU11L 


Of unusually interesting stance and form, this Egyptian Revival chair was crafted during or just after the reign of Napoleon III during the third quarter of the 19th century.  Strength and boldness are projected in the unending stream of beautifully chiseled bronze mounts.  Masks of Egyptian men surmount both handholds, these exquisitely cast sculptures depicting a traditional garb with a single scarab over each man’s forehead.  Both legs feature strong busts of Egyptian royalty flanked by wings of victory, each standing over a pair of feet that terminate the column most effectively.  These feet are stamped KARN to the underside and the solid mahogany tapering leg tenons directly into these sabots.  The molding is embellished with repeating and graduated series of laurel leaves that, in the chair back and apron, flank a single floral rosette.  It is a picture of perfect symmetry, angularity and bold presence.  A rare example preserved in outstanding condition, this is a unique statement piece that commands attention in any classical setting.

Measurements:  30” H x 27” W x 22” D, 17 1/2” H to seat
