"Sofa Or Apple Tree Or Golden Wood Empire Period Attributed To Marcion"
Fireside, apple tree or chaise longue sofa in lacquered and gilded wood. Production from the late Empire period, 1810s. Not stamped; it is most likely a work of Marcion, who produces seats in the same spirit. Pierre-Benoit Marcion (1769 - 1840) was, with Jacob, the main supplier of the Imperial Palaces and dignitaries of the Empire. Our room is typical of the seats that furnished imperial and official palaces under the Empire, more particularly with this apple tree sofa also called fire corner sofa or chaise longue. It is said that this type of seat was one of the Emperor's favorite models, allowing him to lie on it while keeping his boots on his feet which he could warm up before the fire by passing his legs over the armrest. Beautiful amateur set, unusual and very characteristic of the Empire style. If the old sofas are difficult to place because of their great length, this one is of a reduced size. Also covered at the back, it can also be put in the center of a room and separate a living room from a dining room for example. Together in excellent condition; it is covered with new Empire silk with placed and repetitive patterns typical of the end of the Empire (Tassinari and Châtel). The woods were gilded in the 20th century. Daybed: Length: 140cm Depth: 80cm Back height: 96cm Seat height 42cm
