18th Century, Italian Louis XV Carved Giltwood Armchair
Measurements: cm H 108 x W 73 x D 77, seat H 46 x D 51 x W 61
The splendid armchair, in finely carved and gilded wood, was made in Genoa, in the Louis XV period, mid-18th century. The pentagonal back has a wavy and curvilinear profile, and is decorated with carvings with phytomorphic and rocaille elements. The armrests, slightly moved and decorated with carved leaves, end with a volute and from this fit the seat. The band under sitting is moved and decorated with rocaille elements, as well as the legs, arched, and curly feet. On the back, a repainting of the ochre tint was done. The back and seat are padded and lined in red velvet with fine ochre and grey decorations.
The type of carving accords refinement and gracefulness to the armchair. The shaped backrest, the wavy armrests and the curved legs give elegance and charm to this seat, easily inserted in any furnishing context, both marked by modern and antique taste.
