Late 19thc painted French fauteuil
Dimensions:W: 67cm (26.4")H: 93.5cm (36.8")D: 68.5cm (27")
A decorative late 19thc/early 20thc painted French fauteuil (open armchair).
The chair frame has been finished in a deep green paint with areas of gilding, especially on the carved sections.
The chair has a shaped top rail with a central flower & leaf crested carving.
This leads down to a 'lattice' design carving (in a light cream paint) with a flower & leaf carving on the corners.
There is further lattice decoration on the sides of the frame.
The shaped arms have upholstered arm rests & s-scroll arm supports.
The seat rail is serpentine shaped, again with flower & leaf carving, leading to cabriole legs with similar decoration.
At the base of the legs is an acanthus carved decoration leading down to a scroll foot.
This chair has a 'shabby chic' feel and has some chipping to the paintwork, but I feel this adds to the character of the piece.
The upholstery is quite unusual but can always be re-upholstered by the purchaser if required.
The paintwork is a deep green colour with areas of gilding, particularly on the carved decoration.
This chair is of stable construction & can go straight into a property.
