Just recovered in a correct style floral cotton damask, this French Louis XV canape’ is in a lovely old state of finish with worn stone grays highlighted with maroon touches. This fine example has a molded serpentine back, arms, and elegant carved cabriole legs headed by flowers and terminating in scroll feet. Mid 18th century


Images here are in varying lighting to show the change in tone that one gets with damask from soft beige to antique gold, as well as carving and paint patina.
