Boulle Inlaid Armchair with Gilt Bronze Mounts

About

This magnificent armchair, or throne chair, is a majestic work of seated furniture, decorated to exacting standards in the highly detailed and complex Boulle technique. It is a rare and wonderful French antique, which should take pride of place in a grand study, living room or throne room. The frame of the chair has been crafted from ebonised wood and inlaid with Boulle marquetry (combining precious tortoiseshell, pewter and brass). This has resulted in deep red coloured panels, decorated with metallic scrolling vines which bloom in white flowers. Curling gilt bronze acanthus leaves are mounted onto the four triangular chair legs, the scrolling arm-rests and chair back, further ornamenting the piece and adding extra opulence. Additionally, the chair apron is decorated with a scrolling, gilt bronze Green Man mask mount, which is mirrored by the gilt bronze crowned cartouche fixed to the chair’s top rail. The chair has been upholstered in a bright yellow-gold colored fabric, which is embroidered with white flowers.
