Baroque 17th century walnut armchair in a fresh damask cover
Baroque 17th century walnut armchair in a fresh damask cover.
A major form throughout Europe in the 17th century, my feelings would be that this stately armchair is French. Now gently restored to the splendor of the Louis XIII period, this will make a sturdy as well as comfortable large armchair for one of your favorite rooms.
Carved arms rest on well turned supports baluster forms joining at blocks. A raked back gives comfort . Equally well formed stretchers add strength to the base.
H. 47″, w. 36″, d. 23, seat ht. 17.5″. At bold and powerful chair. $1795
