Antique Giltwood Regence Style Banquette from France, 19th Century

This stunning gilded, eight leg, antique French Regence style banquette dates to the 19th Century.  It has been reupholstered in a fabric with a pale yellow ground having stems of large pale blue Chrysanthemums and smaller stems of pale blue Chrysanthemums. Gold colored gimp surrounds the material. At the center of each leg on the apron is the classical Regence shell with scrolling acanthus leaves to either side. The gilded legs have motifs of the five leaf palmette at the bend, which was used during the Regence period. Gentle S-scroll legs terminating in acanthus leaf scrolled feet known as Roquillards complete each leg. And the ends of the bench, the apron is void of motifs.

Versatile in its uses, this French Regence style banquette can be placed anywhere beautiful seating is needed.

CONDITION:  Very good condition. Gilding has been touched up at some point in its history.  Very minor spot on fabric.
