French Louis XV Style Antique Duchesse Brisée Armchair Lounge, 19th Century

$3,950per set

About

Delightfully worn and aged, this gorgeous chaise lounge in two-parts is coined a "Duchesse Brisée", a form that offers flexibility in design and positioning as either piece can stand alone or be positioned as intended. Crafted during the last quarter of the 19th century, the solid beech surface shows traces of the original gilding in the worn carvings and rubbed frame. It retains an early caning that remarkably has survived with minimal break or loss, the cane silky and dark from years of rubbing and oxidizing. These are difficult to find, particularly in this fine worn surface and Provincial form. It is an exquisite acquisition for the traditional French interior. Measurements: 32" D x 69" L x 37" H, seat height 11 1/4"; individual lengths 37 1/2" and 31 1/2".
