This antique Frenchprie dieu was hand sculpted from select French walnut, and features boldly carved acanthus plumes supporting the elbow rest, which lifts for storage. Angels faces carved in full relief flank the cross at the center, surrounded by elaborate foliates and framed by tapered and carved columns. Carved feet add a nice touch. Preserved in remarkable condition and newly upholstered in Italian cut velvet in a lovely antique gold color!
