Fine Louis XV Style Aubusson Upholstered Antique Settee, 19th Century


A small and original retailing plaque is affixed beneath this settee attributing the craftsmanship to the firm of Belzaco & Sons-in-Law. The firm of “A. Perrichet & Belzaco” is noted in a full page ad in France’s “Annuaire de L’Armée Française” of 1897 as being founded in 1834 and being in the business of retailing furniture at 4 et 6, Rue de la Pépiniére, Paris. The settee remains in exceptional condition and still retains it's original hand-stitched Aubusson upholstery. The scene is a work of art, the back capturing a pair of Peacocks and a pair of Ducks in a meadow framed in a border of swirling foliage and acanthus while the seat depicts a wolf dressed in a Shepherd's clothing as he creeps up on lambs at rest in the pasture. While the textile has darkened with time and dirt and numerous areas have lost their weave, the overall fabric remains stabile and in outstanding condition for it's age. The settee is a fine piece of craftsmanship, the molded frame crested by a demilune display of flowers with gilt highlights, the surfaces throughout with traces of polychromed red and gold wash over patinated mahogany. The legs are joined with pinned tenon mortise construction, resulting in a very sturdy and stabile seating piece despite well over a century of enjoyment. The legs are carved carefully with the typical display of flowers among acanthus leafage and terminating in scrolling toes. For anyone passionate about the Louis XV form, this is an exceptional investment grade piece you will cherish in your collection for a lifetime. Measurements: 25 1/8" D x 63 1/2" W x 38 1/4" H; 17" H to seat Condition report: Original Aubusson, worn and discolored with threadbare areas and loose threads - however, the covering is stabile and incredibly attractive. Fabric on back torn in several areas, revealing the original horsehair stuffing. Delightfully worn surface. Sturdy and comfortable.
