19th Century French Silk Sedan Chair Mini Display Cabinet
This elegant sedan chair (chaise a porteur in French) dates from circa 1870. A very rare find. The beautiful bevelled glass windows are the original early glass. The chair is hand made wood with gorgeous silk brocade covering with metallic braid binding the edges. The interior is lined with very fine silk brocade and a glass shelf. These sedan chairs make lovely accessories for French Fashion Dolls or display vitrines for antique watches or jewellery. The little brass latch on the door is still intact and works.
Exclusively sourced in France by Lily Pond.
