A French Louis XIII style dining room fauteuil from the 19th century, with os de mouton base, large scrolling arms, cross stretcher and used foliage upholstery. Created in France during the 19th century, this Louis XIII style armchair features a slightly slanted back connected to a rectangular seat. Both seat and back have been reupholstered at some point in France with a foliage-themed fabric (which is now used), secured with a nailhead trim. The armchair is flanked with two large open scrolling arms with delicately curving supports in the front. It is raised on four typical Louis XIII os de mouton legs (mutton bone legs), connected to one another through a scrolling H-Form cross stretcher, complemented by a side stretcher in the front. With its graceful lines and lovely upholstery, this 19th century French Louis XIII style wooden armchair with os de mouton base will bring a stately presence to any dining room or living room.
