Anglo-Indian Mahogany Récamier – SOLDMid 19th century
A British colonial William IV mahogany récamier, with (when facing) a left-hand raised sweeping upholstered arm and right-hand scrolled foot end. The moulded back frame sweeps down and terminates at the base of the comfortably stuff-over seat. The sweep, roll of arm and scrolled foot end are decorated with stylized carvings of foliage motifs along its frame.
The récamier has been newly upholstered with a quality off-white fabric. The upholstery is finished with double piping and comes with a lovely bolster cushion, finished with ruched button ends. The récamier stands on four short cabriole legs ending on scrolled feet.
The récamier is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The mahogany has a rich warm shade with a striking grain.
