"Pair Of Benches With Frame End Of XIX Eme Century"
Rare pair of framed antechamber benches.
this pair of benches was probably intended to furnish an anteroom, an entrance, a vestibule in the manner of the waiting seats in the Venetian palaces.
they are made of painted wood in a lacquered green color and taken up with numerous floral motifs in gold of great finesse.
There have been a few small repainting and gilding and a light varnish comes to protect everything.
the contrast between gold and this deep green is the most beautiful effect.
the scalloped backrest is worked with harmonious curves and a system of cleats allows the backrest frame to be accommodated in its perfectly adapted and solid housing.
the seat is worked in a scalloped manner with a slightly crossbow-shaped movement.
the seat frame fits perfectly into its bowl housing. frame mounting is not suspected when the frame is in place.
each bench rests on four elegant curved legs ending in small clogs.
a hem taken again with the gilding comes to mark the fretwork of the seat.
each of the four frames is upholstered in the old fashioned way with an already old system of straps that we were able to keep and we took the option of playing with spring and offering an interesting contrast with the installation of a very beautiful velvet with floral motifs of great quality.
we have the references of this fabric if you wish.
the whole is magnificent and the contrast between the green and gold carcasses with this modern fabric is very successful, the photos do not allow you to restore the success of this agreement.
These benches date from the end of the 19th century and are in the Louis XV style, very much in the spirit of the frame seats of this period.
Of course, it is possibly possible to have a second set of frames made in order to modulate the change of fabrics according to the seasons as we did at the time.
For example Damascus and silks for spring and summer, velvets or small tapestries for autumn and winter.
It's a matter of taste, but having this type of seat leaves room for the imagination.
a rare pair of very good quality and very decorative frame benches.
important detail: they are comfortable!
