Antique French Carved Walnut Fireside Dining Arm Chair Tapestry Unicorn & Lady


~Direct from France~

~Here's an absolutely stunning antique French 'fireside' or "throne" arm chair!~

~Great as a focal point, excellent as an arm chair at the “head of the table” and also wonderful for a reading chair~


~Sweeping carved arms and armrests, flared for ease of access~

~Substantial lower chair with wide, ornate open carved panel across the front and carved block legs with detailed carved paw feet!~

~Oversize brass tacks around the edges~

~~Well built by craftsmen of the period~



~Needlework is beautiful on BOTH the upper and lower chair, with the scene depicting one of a historical set of tapestries~

~The lady and her maidservant, framed by the lion and the unicorn holding up pennants.  Of course, the lion presents England and the unicorn represents Scotland.
