A fine early nineteenth-century French Empire period duchesse brisée armchair with accompanying footstool. This set is in the original paint with applied gilded highlights. The restrained form embraces the new Empire style that emerged shortly after the Directoire period, with a lozenge decoration on the back, a popular motif reminiscent of the the ancient Egyptian discoveries made after Napoleon conquered the country. Both the chair and the footstool are supported by elegant tapered legs.

French, c.1805.

Later upholstery in good order, a very comfortable chair with overstuffed feather cushions.
