FRENCH LOUIS XVI DISTRESSED PAINTED WINGBACK ARM CHAIR
Circa early-to-mid 19th century
Item # 610RYZ16 


This delightfully worn chair of the Louis XVI taste has such beauty in the numerous layers of scrubbed cream, white and gray paint; the carvings are crisp in recesses and naturally softened in areas of greatest handling.  Built to last the test of time, the frame is crafted with generous tenon-mortised members, the corners locked together permanently with tiny wooden pins.  The carved molding is typical of the period with a twisted-rope along the upper edge and repeating waterleaves along the inner edge, the crest culminating in a floral display and flanked on either corner by angular finials.  Each handhold is carved with crisp serrated foliage curving over them.  The chair is raised over turned and fluted legs in the typical manner, these carved with relief rosettes in the knees - the underside is left uncovered, showing a tidy and clean joinery free of repair or replacement.  It is a warm and most interesting strikepoint piece for a setting where age and surface history can lend authenticity to the interior.

Measurements:  47” H x 28” W x 24 1/4” D, 17 1/2” high to seat

Condition Report:
