French Antique Ebony & Giltwood Charles X Style Stool. This is truly a rare item. Hand painted in gold gilt and ebony. Neo-classic timeless styling. We have certainly seen the stools before but to see one with the raised back with turned spindles is truly a treat for fine furniture lovers. Upholstery is in great shape. The size of this piece is 18.5" d x 24" w x 24.5" h.
The Comte d'Artois, a brother of Louis XVI who survived the French Revolution and acceded to the throne in 1824, was crowned Charles X. Although his reign was brief (he abdicated in 1830), his era was significant in terms of productivity and design.
Twenty years before he came into power, when Napoleon had himself declared Emperor of France in 1804, the plain and simple furniture of the Directoire period began again to exhibit the 18th-century French love of luxury. The architects of this fashion were Charles Percier and P.F.L. Fontaine, in association with the painter Jacques-Louis David. The Empire style, as it was known, was taken from the Roman Empire.
