This piece features an irregular cartouche-shaped plate having an arched crest of C-scrolled rocaille above similarly detailed sides and rail which centers a similar scrolling motif.
This canapé is flanked by adjoining fauteuils with "C" scroll and rocaille modeled crest rails, continuing on serpentine rectangular frames enclosing padded backs, padded down-sweeping arms and conforming padded seats over undulating seat rails with rocaille carving. The whole piece is raised on six front cabriole legs with foliate detailed knees ending in whorl feet. The sofa is upholstered in a French blue toile on a cream background.
Measures: 119.5 x 114 inches.
Reference: Solitude Palace, Stuttgart, Germany. Very similar to those Sofas and Mirrors in Canape De L'Amitie form designed by Solitude's Chief Architect, La Guepiere for the " Anteroom." Though no furnishings survive in place from the Anteroom of Solitude, La Guepiere's conceptual drawings do. And these drawings bear strong resemblance to the Perim Lang Sofa as do chairs in place at Solitude in other palace rooms. less
