An outstanding example of 18th century Rococo furniture in the high Venetian style with elaborately formed rocaille carving in fine detail evident on every part of the frame. The Rococo style of Louis XIV flourished in France in the 18th century and found its way to the aristocratic parlors of well-heeled Venetian families. The Rococo form in Italy took on a heavier more Baroque quality with deeply carved shell, leaf, and curvilinear frames. The carving was usually gilded or polychromed giving it a more formal look. This fine example has endured through the centuries with wear to the gilded finish and frame but in fine structural condition. It has been recently reupholstered in a bold stripe; size 66" in width, 39" in height, and 21" in depth.
