Object Description

An extremely chic example of a French Hepplewhite period painted armchair. The pierced ‘wheel-back’ pattern was popular among the aristocracy at this time as was such delightful decoration as shown here, with garlands of flowers and foliate sprays surrounding the central panel showing Venus attended by her putto or angel of love, all in true classical style.
A stunning, comfortable and ultimately usable chair.

Object Condition

Decoration stabilised; reupholstered and covered in horsehair.
