Antique Hand Crafted and Carved Nutwood Louis Seize XVI Canape / Settee / Bench



Hand carved antique work of beauty of museum quality and condition. We have seen and sold our fair share of excellent condition, antique pieces of furniture, but for a settee that is well over 100 years old to be in this condition even amazed us. Somewhere in the 1980's it got re-upholstered with an excellent green velvet fabric which too is in superb condition still. Former owners could not have looked after this settee any better and it, again, felt like a blessing for it to have found its way to us. This striking canapé is as strong and stabile as the day it was handcrafted and the solid nutwood frame could not be anymore 'clean' either. The hand carved details in this great looking and very comfortable settee are of a quality and finesse that make them an absolute joy to look at. This kind of workmanship you just don't see anymore in this day and age. The striking pediment with its quiver, arrows and torch is topped of by a rare, triple bow. Other stunning details are the accanthus leafs that are folded over the armrests, the organically beautiful finials and the perfect cannelures in the legs and armrests. In our images you may find one or two minor imperfections, but they too will be dealt with prior to shipping. If you appreciate the design, quality, uniqueness, beauty and excellent condition of this Fine antique as much as we do then you will love our price.
