Italian Baroque Louis XIV Style Gold Leaf Oversized Chair

About

19th century Italian Baroque Louis XIV style gold leaf oversized chair. Louis XIV, France's self proclaimed "Sun King" adopted the sun as his emblem, the symbol of Apollo who he associated himself with, god of peace and the arts; it is also the star which gives life to all things, rising and setting. Like Apollo, Louis XIV was a warrior fighting to restore peace; his legacy includes Baroque architecture and arts. It was crucial for him to establish an image of power and strength, which shows in his elaborate furniture style and palaces. Longest-reigning French monarch in history, he remained on the throne for 72 years. This oversized chair with its high square shaped upholstered back and seat resembles a throne. Pair of majestic detailed winged cherubs armrest supported on fluted slightly S-scrolled legs connecting with fluted X-shaped cross stretcher.
