Exceptional Papier Mache Lacquered & Gilt English Chair


A very nice black lacquered and gilt papier mache gondola chair made in England about 1860. Wonderful and fanciful scalloped back with gilt seaweed scrolls and mop decoration. Not too long ago these charming chairs where considered the height of good taste. Now there is a good chance you will not see another for a while. In any case chairs like these where designed with shape and sculpture in mind. They are loosely based on chairs found in Venetian gondolas with a little bit of grotto furniture tossed in for good measure. Exceptional quality and workmanship.
