LOUIS XVI STYLE PARCEL GILT AND WHITE PAINTED ARM CHAIR
Up to four may be available, sold individually; probably French, circa 1940's
Item # 312XKP02P
Newly recovered in a neutral high quality gray fabric finished with contrasting gimp and bronze tacking, the chair incorporates tasteful gilded highlights in a dominantly pearl painted frame. Precisely crafted and carved, the chair exhibits some fine detailing, including the multidimensional applied rosettes on the arms and knees. The frames are beautifully molded with crisp reeding, the arms curving outward and raised over stop-fluted supports, the overall form of each remains restrained and appropriate for any formal room without dominating the setting. Resting over turned and tapering legs with bands of gilded acanthus around the knee and beaded turnings around the ankles, the chair is a most striking and practical piece ideally suited as a desk chair, accent piece for the living rooms or presented in pairs (if multiples are still available). We acquired these as a set of four but are selling them individually.
Note on shipping: clients are welcome to arrange their own shipping; if you elect us to ship for you, this will be sent palletized via YRC Freight. If multiples of the same chair are purchased at the same time, the shipping cost will be: 1-2 chairs: $ 249; 3-4 chairs: $ 299
