Location: Dallas

Gloriously carved in an explosion of the Baroque style, this armchair boasts its original needlepoint tapestry seat! The seatback is a work of art, with stylized shell, urn floral and foliate motifs, leading the eye to the facing arches of the seatback crown, centered with an acanthus flourish reminiscent of the timeless fleur de lys. The gracefully scrolled armrests provide a framework for the wonderful needlepoint tapestry seat in very good condition, with turned and carved legs connected with demilune stretchers below for support.
Circa 1880s.
Measures 51.5 x 27 x 29; seat height 19.5.
