About

We are delighted to offer for sale original 1810 Napoleon Bonaparte French Fauteuil armchair made from solid fruitwood Where to begin, this is one of the most stunning armchairs I have ever seen, the detail of the carving is simply sublime throughout. The chair dates to 1810 and is hand-carved from the very desirable fruitwood. Each arm has an Egyptian head with sits on top of a Lion paw foot. At first glance, the chair looks stunned all over but upon closer inspection, one finds said detailing is expertly carved in the timber The rattan base is in perfect order and is certainly a later replacement, rattan doesn’t last nearly 210 years. The has been repaired to the top of one arm at some point, it has some old dead worm but we have treated it just in case In terms of art furniture, you would find a better example of a chair anywhere than this Dimensions: Height 90cm Width 56.5cm Depth 55cm Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point. This item is available for collection from our Wimbledon warehouses.
