Circa 1800 French Giltwood And Tapestry Chair

This antique French giltwood side chair has absolutely amazing hand carved details.  The ebenist has faded the smallest leaves into the wood replicating the transparency of tiny new growth; and the petals of the flowers are so three- dimensional, they could almost be real.  The composition of motifs is also asymmetrically placed in keeping with the Louis XV Style.  The moldings on the sides have asymmetrically, raised individual small panels which have floral and foliate vines and a cartouche with a shell and raised heart. The other motifs throughout the chair are cartouches, feathered acanthus leaves, gadrooned leaves, daisies, marguerites, scrolling vines and reticulated shells, c and s-scroll leaves and margent.

The tapestry is a scenic full field center medallion tapestry featuring a woman and her dog walking in a garden with a tall vase on pedestal to the side.  The seat has animals that appear to be running in a forest.  Due to its age and position on the seat, this portion of the tapestry needs some repair. This antique giltwood chair will be an asset to any room.
