French 19th Century Louis XVI Painted Tapestry Chair with the timeless classicism of ancient Rome was revived during the reign of Louis XVI and refined, artistically expressed, and perfected by the French. This chair is a case in point: Perfectly tailored architecture with subtly arched seatbacks and provide wonderful visual appeal. Fine carved detail abounds, made more evident by the original painted finish which has achieved a lovely patina over the decades. Tapered & fluted column legs provide support, while a variety of motifs including spiral ribbon, laurel garlands, rosettes and more are artfully expressed in the solid wood frame. Nothing, however, compares to the superlative needlepoint & petit point upholstery on this antique furniture, painstakingly woven for hour after hour, day after day, until the stunning floral pattern emerged!
Circa 1890s.
