LOUIS XV CARVED BEECH DUCHESSE BRISÉE IN TWO PARTS
Circa last quarter of the 19th century
Item # 909PNX19A 


Delightfully worn and aged, this gorgeous chaise longue in two-parts is coined a "Duchesse Brisée", a form that offers flexibility in design and positioning as either piece can stand alone or be positioned as intended. Crafted during the last quarter of the 19th century, the solid beech surface shows traces of the original gilding in the worn carvings and rubbed frame. It retains an early caning that remarkably has survived with minimal break or loss, the cane silky and dark from years of rubbing and oxidizing.

These are difficult to find, particularly in this fine worn surface and Provincial form. It is an exquisite acquisition for the traditional French interior. 

Measurements: 32" D x 69" L x 37" H, seat height 11 1/4"; individual lengths 37 1/2" and 31 1/2"

Condition Report:
Very minor breaks in caning, overall remaining in very good condition. Extensive surface wear, inactive pest damage, chipping and loss. Old stable cracks in crest rail. Sturdy and strong in all joints. No cushions.
