This antique French armchair is particularly remarkable for the finely cast gilt bronze swans which make up its front legs. They are mounted onto the padded wooden armrests and frame of the chair, which comes with a cushion and cream-coloured upholstery. The top rail of the chair, as well as the front of the skirting below the seat are also mounted with gilt bronze decorative motifs.
