French Directoire period painted wood armchair from the late 18th century with out-scrolling back. Bring home a touch of French elegance with this late 18th century Directoire period fauteuil. Crafted from painted wood, this antique chair embodies a time-honored design, featuring an out-scrolling back and carved knuckles on the open arms, subtly in-curving in the front.
