Although lions have been used to depict French royalty for well over a millennium, they are most associated with Louis XIV today. This armchair boasts fierce lions' heads at the tip of each gracefully contoured armrest. Generous seat and high seatback provide wonderful proportion and comfort. The scrolled framework provides classic visual appeal, especially considering the acanthus plume accents and lions' paw feet. The upholstery is in excellent condition so it must have been recently applied. Hand-crafted from select French walnut.
Circa 1880s.
Measures 47.5 x 27 x 31; seat height 20.5.
