Presented for sale is an extraordinary Belle Epoque era Louis XV style canapé with a hand-carved frame, painted with a partial gilt finish. The sinuously curved frame features a high arched back crested with floral carving continuing onto shaped arms. The canapé has been recently covered in a beautiful gold and silver paneled fabric with a scrolled pattern, which perfectly matches the partial gilt of the painted surface.
The cushion is filled with down and the piece is supported on six cabriole legs. This is an incredibly proportioned piece with pleasing lines and curvature. The upholstery is in excellent condition and the frame exhibits a nicely aged patina with wear to the painted surface and fading of gilt, exactly the kind of finish that designers look for.
