Early C19th Carved Giltwood Stool
A giltwood X-frame stool or window seat, after the design by Charles Percier & Pierre Fontaine. The curved seat covered in the old pink velvet re-trimmed, flowing into outswept scrolling arms connected by turned handles with carved flutes, raised on mirrored outswept legs connected via turned stretchers, the scrolling feet sitting on small wooden balls. The simple elegant form has a sublimely wonderful colour and original gilded texture. France, circa 1820
