This faithful copy of a delightful en cabriolet armchair from the Parisian master Nicolas-Denis Delaisement (master in 1776) has the finest decoration with very elegant proportions. The carving consists of fine tracery above the acanthus ornamenting the pronounced hollowed moulding of the arm-rest support, then bead mouldings, fusaroles and perlettes, which adorn the balloon-backed chair. The front legs are fluted and cabled.
The original has an inventory number inked on the reverse of one of the rails.
