Belle Epoque Giltwood Chaise Longue Circa 1900


This chaise lounge is entirely gilded, and superbly carved with openwork swags and baskets brimming with flowers. The originality of the Louis XVI-inspired form speaks to the creativity of the finest Belle Epoque designers working in Paris around 1900. Unsigned, the exceptional quality suggests it was produced in the Paris workshops of Jansen or Carlhian. It is reproduced in the 1985 book "European Furniture of the 19th Century" by Christopher Payne, where, on page 183, he calls it "A fine example of the woodcarver's art…the woven baskets of summer flowers are a delightful touch."
