An Italian painted wood Rococo style Venetian armchair from the early 19th century, with carved splat, scrolling arms, cabriole legs and cross stretcher. Born in Venice during the early years of the 19th century, this exquisite painted armchair features a slightly slanted pierced back with carved splat, adorned with a parcel-gilt crest. Two open arms with scrolled knuckles are resting on the rectangular seat with new upholstery. The chair is raised on four cabriole legs accented with gilded C-scrolls, and connected to one another through a serpentine H-form cross stretcher. The ensemble is painted in a soft color, highlighted with a discreet parcel-gilt accentuation. With its lovely Rococo lines and light finish, this Venetian armchair, circa 1810 will bring a touch of Italian refinement to any home, particularly in a living room or bedroom.
