$ 9,500
  • Description
    French, late 19th Century
    Height 95cm, width 65cm, depth 54cm
    This armchair is a fine piece of workmanship, completed by possibly the most important craftsman of the late 19th and early 20th Century, François Linke. The back of the chair is signed ‘F. Linke A Paris’.
    Inspired by the furniture of the Louis XVI period, this armchair is designed in a restrained, Neoclassical style. It is comprised of a light-coloured, beech wood frame, which is carved – on its top rail, back frame and arm supports – with bands of foliage. Intricately-carved ovolo mouldings and fluting decorates the seat rails. The armchair stands on four, turned and fluted legs, which are attached to the seat rails by peg joints, carved with rosettes.
    The armchair has been upholstered with a beautifully patterned cream, green and turquoise silk. It will make an elegant addition to a study, library or living room.
