Sculpted from select French walnut, this elegant chair features subtle asymmetrical touches in the carved embellishment for a wonderful effect. Stylized floral and foliate motifs predominate, and appear on the seatback surround, armrests, apron and cabriole legs. What's particularly noticeable though is the fine original needlepoint and petit-point tapestry upholstery, depicting a Springtime forest scene with flower blossoms and birds flaunting brilliant plumage.
Circa 1890.
Measures 36.5 x 24 x 22; seat height 16.5.
