Napoleon III Mahogany Prie-Dieu

third quarter 19th century, in the rococo taste, the padded arm rest over a pierced foliate-carved back, centered by a carved lamb, the cushion over a serpentine front and cabriole legs, retaining its antique needlepoint upholstery.
h. 35-3/8", w. 18", d. 18-1/2"


**In good "as found" condition.

Minor mars, rubbing and wear to the wood surfaces consistent with age and use. There is some scattered minor insect damage.

The upholstery is worn, with some repaired tears and one tear at the rear corner side that is not visible from the top. The under-upholstery appears to be period materials (probably horse hair).

There is a very slight amount of movement at the joint of the back and seat rail.
