Full Details for Lot 50

Sale 2101 Lot 50

Directoire-Style Polychromed Window Seat

20th century, the long cushioned seat flanked to either end by padded out-scrolled arms, above a foliate- and patera-carved apron, raised on splayed legs ending in acanthine-carved scrolled toes.
h. 30", w. 84", d. 28"

Provenance: Estate of Carol A. Straus, Houston, Texas.

Estimate $1,000-1,500

**In overall very good condition. The legs and "arms" are tight and free of movement at their joints. Sturdy and usable.
The surface exhibits minor scuffs and scrapes, and considerable rubbing, the latter by design.
The upholstery is free of rips or tears. There is some fading to the color on the scroll arms and one side of the reversible seat cushion. Upon close inspection, there are a handful of tiny spots and soiled areas. They look as though they will clean out.
