c.1900 French Needlepoint Louis XV Wing-Back Chair


Stunning antique French Louis XV style wing-back chair with incredible needlepoint upholstery. This amazing chair would be right at home next to the fireplace in the library or study. Utilized in either a gentleman's library, or in a sophisticated lady's parlor this fine chair with it's rust colored background is sure to please. Unfortunately an over-enthusiastic housekeeper over-vacuumed parts of this fantastic chair almost to death. In images 3,6,7,9,10, it shows the damage excessive vacuuming has done.
