French 19th Century Louis XVI Settee
Dimensions: 34 1/4″H x 56 3/4″W x 28″D
A fabulous upholstered 19th century Louis XVI settee from France. This expertly hand-carved antique has recently had its upholstery removed and replaced with a white muslin, providing a blank canvas for the new fabric to come. The settee has a structured upholstered back, upholstered arm rests, and seat. The hardwood frame has been hand-carved with a running coin motif present throughout. The frame, once painted, has had most of its painted finished worn down to the natural hardwood frame. This weathered patina is unbelievably gorgeous and sure to work with any fabric chosen for upholstery. The sofa sits low to the ground, with its short turned and tapered feet lifting the seat to a height of 15″.
