A rare Louis XV wooden throne with zinc water font, 18th century

About

An original one off bespoke creation. Bow fronted with dramatic proportions and patina - formally from the grounds of a Chateau in rural France and almost certainly commissioned as a custom piece for the estate. Original duck egg blue hue, with detachable zinc water font and casket, featuring brass spouts and removable lid with finials. Incredible character, a stunning addition to a hallway or outside/inside space. The font stamped '1771', the throne made earlier Louis XV.
