An Italian 18th Century Patinated Slate-blue Venetian Settee
Item # 5731
A remarkable Italian 18th century patinated slate-blue Venetian settee. The settee is raised by eight elegant cabriole legs with scrolled feet and charming carved filets. The carvings extend above the arbalest shaped frieze to the striking scrolled upholstered arms. The most impressive scalloped shaped scrolled upholstered back is centered by a fine foliate carving. The back rest is actually removable to create a plush bench.
All original patina throughout. Seat height is 23".
