Scroll down for 5 more photos

This is a small-scale settee, almost diminutive. The feet are of traditional cabriole form, and the rear legs splay out to create a very stylized profile. The upholstery, while not new, is in perfect condition with beautiful needlepoint work. As is traditional, the back is covered in a simpler fabric. See detailed images.

The chair has had reinforcing blocks inside the rear legs. The underside shows its bottom frame, which is clearly 18th century. Given the delicacy of its form, it is a rare survivor, and obviously treasured through the years. It is perfect for a lady’s boudoir, sitting room, etc.

Height: 36 in. Depth: 25 1/2 in. Length: 42 in.
