20th Century Carved White Painted Louis XV Style Canape
Probably France, c. 1910-30

20th Century Carved White Painted Louis XV Style CanapeThis is a beautiful decorator piece, with an intensely carved frame, the truest essence of Rococo revivalism with a strong acanthus inspired design executed in crisp confident carvings.  The molded carved rail flows in ripples, culminating at the center with a solid pierced foliate design that wells up from the bottom and outpours at the crest.  The sofa rests over a beautiful draped apron and five flawlessly formed cabriole legs, each terminating in scrolled french toes.

This sofa is a delightful find for any designer looking for that perfect piece in a formal setting.  It features a fine mellow finish, worn and oxidizing throughout.  With excellent carvings and comfortable proportions, this is a beautiful work for any number of room designs.  It is strong and sturdy for regular comfortable use after a century of life, yet is still young comparatively due to excellent construction techniques.  This will surely be enjoyed in your family for many generations to come.

Measurements:
54 7/8" wide x 31" deep x 37 1/4" high to crest; 19 1/2" high to seat

Condition:
Visually Outstanding Condition
Finish is early, probably original, with a warm mellowing and accumulation of dirt to the frame to slowly build a patina.  Minor chips throughout, consistent with age and use.  Upholstery has stains throughout.  Upholstery breaking down beneath - orange "dust" comes out from the bottom due to age of the foam and stuffing.  Please review images below for full overview of condition.
