Extraordinary French Gilt Parlor Set
It has been along time since I have seen such
a rare set in such lovely condition. The outstanding feature is the
condition of the silk upholstery! There is very little wear and there are
not any spots of missing silk! The scenes depicted on the backs and seats
are all in the 18th century with men and women dressed in long gowns and
long coats. The beautiful scenery of gardens with ladies sitting on garden
benches amongst trees and vines adds to the charm of the upholstered piece.
All of the gilt framework on each piece is done in elaborate scrolls with
incredible detail. A superb set for the discriminating collector!
