VERY FINE EMPIRE ORMOLU MOUNTED MAHOGANY SALON SUITE
Two side chairs with settee, France, c. third quarter of the 19th century
Item # 609EBH25P 


A most exquisite salon suite comprised of two side chairs with a matched settee, this trio exhibits most crisp and handsomely cast gilt bronze mounts.  The frame is simply molded and angular.  Repeating laurel leaves furl outward from a rosette central to the apron, this flanked in all three pieces by masks of Mercury in the knees over turned legs capped in stamped sabots.  The settee has bold open arms with curled handholds mounted with sharp acanthus mounts raised over beautiful carved dolphin figures.  It is an incredibly sturdy and strong construction with unusually thick mahogany woods tenoned into the corners of the legs, the generous material negating the need for stretchers or corner blocks while still remaining tight and perfect in the joints.

We may have a matching pair of open arm chairs to this suite still available in our shop - if interested, please review our full inventory or contact us.

For collectors and designers passionate about purity and exceptional quality, this is a most fine suite for the classical interior.

Measurements:  [settee] 39” H x 51 1/2” W x 21 1/2” D; 15” H to seat; [side chairs] 36 11/16" H x 20" W x 20" D; 17 1/2" H to chair seats

Condition Report: Covered in muslin and ready to be upholstered (muslin discolored and dirty). Small portion of crest mount on one chair missing.  Old refinish with light dings and abrasions to surface as expected. Sturdy strong and comfortable
