Crafted on a grand scale from solid French white oak, this stunning armchair features remarkably lifelike grapevines with ripe grape clusters completely surrounding the seatback. Finials top the seatback posts, just above rosettes and the clockwise & counter-clockwise barley twist forms lead the eye to the heavily padded armrests. A bold acanthus flourish at the tip of the armrests then leades the eye down to the barley twist legs and stretcher below. Upholstered in sumptuous damask fabric that is in excellent condition, it stands ready to create a throne for the royalty in your family!
Circa 1850s.
Measures 50 x 27.5 x 29; seat height 17.5.
