Presented for sale is a sinuously carved late 18th to early 19th century Louis XV Rococo canapé or settee with a partial giltwood and black- lacquered frame. The canapé is covered in a floral French Aubusson tapestry, the seat sitting low to the ground to accommodate the large stiff skirts of the era. The continuity of lines that define the Rococo period are evident in perfect proportion on this fabulous piece with its upholstered back, scrolled arms with manchettes, and cabriole legs ending in a whorl foot.

The canapé is in very good age related condition. The seat has been refurbished by our restorer and is now securely stable. There is a small amount of wear and discoloration to the tapestry commensurate with age and there are some chips to the gilt and lacquered finish expected in a piece of this age. If anyone desires a period French room, this is the piece to have, as it's a fabulous example of the Rococo style.
