19th Century French Regence Gilded Prie Dieu - Armchair is a highly unusual and collectible work of art!  Hand-carved to perfection in the style that first came to prominence in the Royal Court between the reigns of Louis XIV and XV, its graceful scrolls are accentuated with timeless motifs with a masculine interpretation of the Baroque style.  Sporting its original gilded finish, the armrest tilts back to convert the piece into a prayer bench, known as a Prie Dieu in France.


Circa 1860s
