SET OF FOUR ROCOCO REVIVAL CARVED WALNUT ARM CHAIRS EN CABRIOLET
Continental, circa late 19th century
Item # 709RFV15 


This delightful set of four parlor chairs features a crisp carved surface retained handsomely in the rich patinated walnut wood throughout.  This has achieved a certain amount of burnished glow from years of handling and is positively gorgeous.  The covering is an old hand woven fabric that is most attractive - it is heavily worn and threadbare in areas, but we would without doubt want to retain the fabric as it adds much depth.  Each chair rests over four cabriole legs flanking a fully developed scrolling apron with foliage curling around a rocaille form at the center.  They are locked in place with a curvy x-form stretcher.  These are currently displayed in our gallery as dining chairs, simply because they are incredibly comfortable and look great around a smaller table; however, originally they would have been designed for the sitting rooms and probably would have been accompanied by a matching settee.

Measurements:  22” W x 20 3/8” D x 37 5/8” H, 17” H to seat

Condition Report:
Old surface with light wear, some chipping and cracks here and there throughout.  The stretchers bored in the center, each of varying diameter and one particularly large.  Upholstery is old and heavily worn with thinning, wear through the fabric and discoloration throughout; fabric backing the chairs is quite thin and torn (held up with pins).  All chairs are very sturdy, strong and quite comfortable.
