Antique French Louis XV Needlepoint Banquette ~ Bench was sculpted from solid fruitwood, and given no less than six legs, each gracefully sculpted into a cabriole form with floral and foliate carvings, then interconnected with double lyre stretchers below, which in turn feature a carved rosette.  The legs support a subtly undulating apron carved with complementary motifs.  The rich earth tone of the fruitwood provides the perfect framework for the meticulously hand-crafted needlepoint upholstery, stitched in an elaborate pattern of ribbon, foliate plumes and flowers of various earth tone colors set upon a beige and camel colored background.
Circa early 1900s
