18th century, the padded and double-domed back joined by padded out-scrolled arms to the slightly bowed and padded seat, raised on molded cabriole legs ending in scrolled toes, the whole with gilt accents.
h. 39", w. 88", d. 26"

Provenance: Private collection Mobile, Alabama


In "as found" condition. The piece exhibits wear, mars to the surface and indications of past repairs. The upholstery is severely worn. The polychromy exhibits scattered losses, exposing the underlying gesso and wood. The frame is tight and rigid at the arms and legs. There is a repaired break to the top of one front leg. The back exhibits some movement at its center, but appears firmly affixed to the scroll arms.
