Antique French Carved Oak Gentleman's Chair Fumeur BARLEY TWIST Breton
Antique French Carved Oak Chair Fumeur BARLEY TWIST Breton. A very unique French antique chair, with outstanding hand carvings, known as.

A French "smoking chair", or "Fumeuse", "chaise de fumeur". Aristocrats had these specialty chairs created for their use when smoking cigars, pipes or cigarettes. This fumeur was hand carved with exquisite details, the splat featuring a dimensional carved Breton character with hat, above two crossed pipes! Twin barley twist post stiles frame the splat and support the upper back rail. Rail features carved scrolls and stippling, and flips open to reveal storage for pipes, tobacco, etc.

BARLEY TWIST LEGS and BARLEY TWIST CROSS STRETCHERS with carved block joints (What an outstanding piece for a barley twist aficionado). Brass tacks surround edges of upper upholstery and lower seat upholstery. Excellent conversation piece for any room! Well built by craftsmen of the period. 34.5"height x 18"across the seat front. All of our antiques are direct from Europe. I personally select each item for the quality, design and unique characteristics that you will always find in our distinctive inventory at Geaux Vintage Antiques! Good condition for its age, with normal signs of age, use, dings, scratches, chips and imperfections, including splits on stretcher and on the back splat carving (normal and to be expected).

Burgundy upholstery is an older replacement from the original. Sturdy, but not really a chair for heavy/daily use. Screws/hinges on the rail are replacements. Geaux Vintage Antiques has a large inventory of French, English and European antique furniture, as well as an outstanding selection of antique home d├ęcor..

With all that, why Geaux anywhere else? This item is in the category "Antiques\Furniture\Chairs". The seller is "geauxvintagegeaux" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.
