A very attractive late 19th century large giltwood armchair in the Louis XVI style. This has been recently re-upholstered in a pale blue damask pattern fabric with complementary braid trim. The frame is strong with only minor losses to the carved detailing (specifically crest and leg detail), as would be expected, given the age of the chair. The chair has a beautiful curve on the wing back, small armrest pads and a removable seat cushion, and is very comfortable. The red bole and white plasterwork is visible in areas of the gilding, which adds to the character of the chair, reflecting its age.

78 cm wide x 80 cm deep x 119 cm high

Mole Vintage is run by husband and wife, Kevin and Sara Moore and grew out of our shared enthusiasm for sourcing unusual and characterful vintage items.  We are not especially interested in (or expert about) high-end antiques, or followers of current trends, nor bound by a particular period, but we are drawn to pieces which have a strong presence.  Either because of their inherent quality and design, or because they are something unique or eye-catching. 

Much, but not all, of our furniture, lighting, mirrors and decorative items are sourced in France, where we have developed a great network of local dealers since we started six years ago.
