Antique 19th Century French Gilt-Bronze Mounted Mahogany Recamier – Neoclassical Style Seating

19th century French furniture styles prior to the 1848 Revolution, named for Louis-Phillippe d’Orleans, have less ornamentation, carving, gilding, and bronze, and more simple, rounded lines; Napoleon III or Empire Style, which followed the revolution, marks a return to grand interiors and expressions of wealth, meaning expensive materials, especially giltwood, detailed, high-quality work, and an explosion of fine upholstery. This mahogany recamier features an elegant, velvet upholstered top that features a loose seat cushion and two bolster pillows. This piece rests on elegantly curved legs with castors and is decorated with gilt-bronze mounts.
