Antique French Directoire Armchair is a relatively rare find, especially with this level of quality and preservation!  The diamond pattern mohair is of the best quality but showing its age, so probably best replaced in the near future.  The frames are solid sycamore, and feature double-pegged mortise & tenon joinery with swooping, elegant lines in the front legs, the armrests and the back uprights that transition into the back legs in one long crescent shape.  The seatback is the most visually striking aspect, with a panel across the top outlined in gold molding, and three arrows serving as the back splats.  The color and patina of the luxurious old-growth hardwood have remained intact and only add to the allure.
Circa early 1900s
