This Swedish early 19th century gilded baroque chair has a drop-in seat and separate chassis back which are now upholstered in gold damask. The 23 ct gold leaf is fashionably aged and worn through time and use. The cabriole legs and curved, shield shape back owe much to the Regence and early Louis XV French styles. The decoration is carved and incised wood, which has been coated with the white gesso, prior to being covered in gold leaf.
We need more space for our 18th century chairs. Now $400, was $750.
