Outstanding Boulle Parlor Set
This is the parlor set that is all complete
and in fine condition! We don't see complete sets like these too often! We
have the beautiful serpentine front sofa with elaborate scalloped back
with highly decorative gold transfer work with padded arms and gilt paper
trims. You will notice the nice padding on the back and seat of the sofa.
All five feet are turned and intact. Even the black paper on the back is
in fine condition. These sets included an extra large arm chair with a cut
out back and padded arms like the sofa. Again, the gold transfer work is
strong and clear, the silk on the padded seat is perfect and has all the
gilt trim papers. The three side chairs have the cut out back like the arm
chair, but in a smaller rendition. All the chairs have turned front legs
and curved back legs. I also like the way the chairs have a slight
scalloped front to their form that gives that extra detail and
elegance.This set is one of the best sets I have sold in a number of
years. A great addition to your special parlor in a dolls' house.
Measurements: The sofa is 4-1/2"h.x
