A beautiful set of antique carved giltwood furniture with lovely floral fabric dating from the start of the 1900s in Italy. This elegant and sturdy set includes an upholstered two-cushion settee sofa and a pair of superb bergère upholstered armchairs with a pair of matching upholstered footrests. All pieces are decorated with acanthus leaf motifs adorning its carved silver gilt and giltwood frame and four curved cabriole legs turned out at the end with petit scrolls. The upholstered upper sides ("ears") of the sofa and armchairs are connected to a comfortable concave Louis XV-style backrest and features a central gilded stylized motif on the seat rail.
A lovely beige crochet trim lines the edges of the frame and start of upholstery. The upholstery has been redone with a beautiful woven silk fabric featuring red flowers on a beige background from a celebrated Italian fabric house. Two soft feather cushion grace the seat of the sofa, and the armchairs each have their own soft individual cushions as well. This set would be the perfect set to complete a seating area with a elegance and grace. Note on the sofa the silver gilt and giltwood shows areas where the paint has worn to expose traces of red paint on the fronts of the arms, possibly the gesso primer.
