FRENCH LOUIS XV STYLE CARVED POLYCHROMED AND PARCEL GILT ARM CHAIR
Circa late 19th century
Item # 609RKV19P 


Crafted most likely in France during the third quarter of the 19th century, this finely carved gilt wood chair is a wonderful accent piece with it’s curvy Rococo seat back form walks a delicate balance between the heavy and light. A sense of airy transparency is introduced with the carefully pierced crest, a chaotic and intricately carved rocaille over assymetrical scatters of hanging foliate and rising florals.  The thick and heavy apron with it’s two layers of upholstery is greatly lightened with the gilt highlights that flow through the apron and sides and centers of each leg, scrolling into the beautiful crisp toes on each leg.  It is a caned fauteuil, the rattan since covered with a striped coral covering and loose cushion that results in an incredibly comfortable seating piece.  It remains a perfect desk chair or accent piece for the living areas.

Measurements:  25” W x 21” D x 36 1/2” H, 19 3/4” H to seat

Condition Report:
Old cracks to crest cartouche, some gaps in arm joints though these remain firm and sturdy. Upholstery in “good” condition with minor spots of discoloration (as photographed). Extensive surface wear to original gilding with later gilt highlights on raised areas.
