This impressive Gothic fauteuil was sculpted from solid old-growth French white oak during the mid-19th century revival coinciding with the transition to the last monarch of France. The timeless moorish arches are adorned with fleurs de lys paying homage to the outgoing Bourbon dynasty, with references to the church in the quatrefoils and depictions of women of faith which create the armrest supports. The original needlepoint tapestry cushion is in stunning condition, making this a real jewel among the genre!
Circa 1850s.
