French 19th Century Carved Walnut Louis XV Style Tapestry Seat
Dimensions: 26 1/4″H x 25 1/2″W x 15 3/4″D
A beautifully carved French walnut Louis XV style window seat, upholstered in an original tapestry, from the 19th century. Sinuous curves and detailed floral and foliate carvings, hallmarks of Louis XV style, are expressly realized in this remarkable stool. The seat is upholstered in a needlepoint tapestry made with a geometric diamond pattern, with golds, yellows and reds, while the sides and manchettes are covered in a worn, rusty velvet.
