FRENCH LOUIS XV STYLE CARVED GILTWOOD SETTEE
Circa 1900 with original gilding and crisp carvings
Item # 801DMT27P 


A gorgeous and sleek settee of fine quality with crisp carvings and an excellent profile, this is an excellent strikepoint piece for the salon or living rooms.  Each grouping of carved motifs is centered around the naturalism of acanthus and foliage, the crest a most impressive display replete with an inset rocaille surmounted by flowers and furls of leafage.  The open arm form eliminates even a hint of bulk, allowing the form to remain breezy and light with undulating curves that follow the seat back into the outward splayed arms and finally into the cabriole legs terminating in scrolled french toes.  We have left the early and probably original covering on the settee so that the buyer can work with their own upholsterer to have it covered to match their room, the original horsehair stuffing still intact in the seat and back.  It is an absolutely gorgeous piece - we may still have two additional pairs of matching arm chairs available in the shop.

Measurements:  50 W x 23 1/8 D x 38 1/4 H, 15 H to seat

Condition Report:
Early upholstery in poor condition: springs need to be retied, fabric is stained and with holes.  Original gilding with wear throughout.  Minor joint separations, remaining sturdy and strong.
