Antique Venitian Cabriolet Armchair Italian Style



Venitian Cabriolet Armchair

Circa 1755 - 1760.

Dimensions : 90 H x 60 W x 54 D cm.

Original : Private collection, Northern France.

Charming, elegant, refined, this Antique Venitian Cabriolet Armchair made « en cabriole » combines the grace of the eighteenth century with the light exuberance of the Republic of Venice.

These generous forms have intricated and skilled carving : flowers, leaves and scrolls are tastefully portrayed with curves and counter curves that reflect a dynamic architecture.

One can also see excellent detailing not only climbing the legs but finishing at the feet. Above all, a distinctive grace is apparent in this charming model.
