Antique French Carved Oak Cathedral Altar CHAIR Gothic Prayer Lion Renaissance

 

~Direct from a French Cathedral~

~A very unique altar chair, with breathtaking hand carved designs~

~Dimensional rampant lions form each side, with their crown supporting the arms and their claw feet forming the base. Notice the lion’s mane, facial features, tail, and aforementioned feet, all carved with stunning talent and accuracy~
~Front lion’s paws lay against a coat of arms with carved dolphins~
~Each side arm carved with “SALVE”~

~And of course the chair back is equally impressive, with opulent hand carved French shell and flourishes, center mask and side serpents~

~The needlework could have been handcrafted by nuns or the altar society, as they often had this responsibility!~

~Solid and strong, hand carved and well built by craftsmen of the period~

~c1880~

NOTE:  All of our antiques are direct from Europe.  I personally select each item for the quality, design and unique characteristics that you will always find in our distinctive inventory at Geaux Vintage Antiques!

Please shop our store and feel free to email with any questions!

 

Shipping

Due to the larger size, this item requires freight service.  White glove service, fully insured, FOB Shreveport, delivered and placed inside your home (first floor only).  Typically 5-7 weeks, depending on your location.

Please note this longer time period for white glove service; no refunds will be given because of the length of delivery time.

 

Condition

Good condition for its age, with normal signs of age, use, dings, scratches and imperfections.  Underneath the upholstery liner is torn on one side.  Old repair to one of the rampant lion’s foot.  I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email with any questions prior to making a purchase.  Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina…NOT for like-new condition!

 

Geaux Vintage Antiques has a large inventory of French, English and European antique furniture, as well as an outstanding selection of antique home décor.

 

“…with all that, why Geaux anywhere else?”…
