Boulle Parlor Set
This set is in marvelous condition and
consists of a sofa, two fancy arm chairs with padded arms and two side
chairs. The set is upholstered in that cut velvet in a chocolate brown. The
gilt paper trims are all in tact and if you notice, the chairs have the
double row of paper trims which just adds a little something special! The
seats to the chairs have that scalloped front too. The backs of the chairs
have the open cut out backs with fine gold transfer work. I would also like
to point out the padded arms have the paper trims too. As a collector of the
Boulle furniture myself, I always like to study the design of the gold
transfer work. The sofa has feather designs all across the back and along
the front legs. This set is all original and has never had a crack or repair
work done. It obviously was well taken care of and is in mint condition!
Measurements: 4-1/4"h. x 8-3/8"w. (sofa), arm
chairs are 6"h. The side chairs are 5-1/4"h.
