Regency Faux Rosewood Antique Recamier Chaise Lounge c. 1825

About

A fine work from the first quarter of the nineteenth century, this antique Regency Period recamier probably originates from England. The frame is crafted of solid beech, but the visible surfaces are very handsomely treated with hand painting and staining to create the effect of rosewood. Gilded panels and circles create a distinct contrast in the surface, particularly over the very bold gilded reeding of the bulbous legs.

The form is heavily influenced by the Greco-Roman furniture and forms. It is crafted to last, the open underside of the frame revealing simple and untouched craftsmanship with two stretchers sinking into the sides of the frame with double-tenons. An illegibly stamp remains next to one of these tenons, a circular maker's mark.

Once you have had this covered in a more appropriate fabric, it will be an absolutely gorgeous piece of unique but comfortable form.

Measurements: app. 78" W x 27" D x 31 1/2" H; 20" H to top of cushion, 12 7/8" H to top of frame

Condition Report: Probably regilded, as it is rather full and vibrant. Original faux-rosewood painting under later shellac and wax. Surface is worn with many gouges, abrasions and other minor blemishes as expected. Very sturdy and strong - note that one leg has a crack in the top of the cap, though this is very stable and does not require attention at this time. One castor broken and missing a screw, all castors entirely original. Upholstery is stained - the "more stained" side is shown in the photos, the other side with lesser discolorations and staining. We certainly would recommend having it recovered regardless. Overall in very good original condition.
