FRENCH LOUIS XVI STYLE CARVED POLYCHROMED CANAPE SOFA
Circa late 19th century
Item # 905GPZ31P 


An absolutely gorgeous carved beech canapé sofa, this Louis XVI style settee is a delightful and vibrant object.  The rich polychromed surface is a fine mixture of greens, dusty gilding, vibrant gilding and grays over a red and white bole ground.  Note the incredible variety of carvings - the top of each leg is surrounded by carved curled foliage over stop-fluted columns with tiny acanthus carvings inset within them.  The apron is a gorgeous display of laurel leaves and berries over discs.  The legs are tenon-mortised with tiny pegs that lock this together, these pegs being hidden ingeniously within the carved rosette over each leg.  It is covered with an attractive high-quality covering that remains in overall good condition.

For anyone passionate about the Louis XVI form, this is a stunning piece that makes a difference.
