Belle Epoque period gold leaf tabouret from France c. 1895


A charming Belle Epoque period gold leaf tabouret (stool) from France c. 1895. Look at the fanciful carved detail on this piece where all the wood is embellished with gold leaf. Each of the four splay shaped legs are connected by a cross stretcher centred on a bold finial. The slender curved elements resemble wire but are actually made of wood with spheres of varying sizes. The apron of the seat has a serpentine shape on all four sides and supports the upholstered seat that is now covered in a luscious purple Belgian linen with a contrasting cord trim. This piece is perfect both for extra seating but also for adding a dash of glamour and wit to a room.
