FRENCH LOUIS XV STYLE GREEN PAINTED SETTEE
Circa late 19th century
Item # 611UPZ05P 


An excellent settee from the mid-to-late 19th century in the Louis XV taste, it is crafted with precision using tenon-mortise joints locked together with pins that are just barely visible under the surface with hairline cracking where the pin naturally shrinks and contracts over time. The comfortable webbed seat is upholstered over the rail and is flanked on either side by open arms, these raised over curling arm supports that twist into the side of the apron. The crest rail, apron and knees are beautifully carved with floral relief, the inner and outer edges of the frame carefully highlighted in a burnished gilt paint. The cabriole legs terminate in gentle scrolls over tapered stump toes.

This was originally a much larger suite that has been separated out, but the other pieces may still be available in our collection if you browse our full inventory - they include two pairs of arm chairs and two pairs of side chairs.

Measurements:  41 1/4" H x 79" W x 25" D x 15 1/2" H to seat

Condition Report:
Later green and gilt painted surface, heavily worn, particularly around the feet; paint can be somewhat flaky to the touch in some areas. Cracks and gesso loss, settee being very sturdy and comfortable. Upholstery in overall “good” condition with some stains, minor discolorations and loose threads.
