This chair is typical of the Empire period. circa 1810-1815. Of the same model as the previous chair, this armchair has all its qualities and generosity. It differs in its arm-rests, which very prettily continue the line of their curved supports, and are ornamented with a very fine sculpture of stylized lotus leaves.
This pure Antique French Empire chair, with a powerful yet not heavy look, is typical for the taste of the early 19th century which is inspired by the Etruscan style and furthermore and mainly by the discoveries of Napoleon in the Egyptian expeditions. As you can see the pure white upholstery plays off the off gray painted finish. This chair offers us turned front legs with ornamented extremities in the shape of lotus leaves.
