Description:

NAPOLEON 111 PRAYER CHAIR EXTREMELY RARE DUE TO THE FACT THAT IT HAS A LARGE HAND PAINTED PORCELAIN PLAQUE OF A CHILD PRAYING WHICH MEASURES 28 cm x 38 cm AND IS SIGNED A.D.G... POSSIBLY FROM THE ITALIAN SCHOOL THIS CHAIR HAS BEEN IN AN ATTIC FOR AT LEAST 80 YEARS WHERE IT WAS HIDDEN FROM THE GERMANS WHO WERE PILLAGING FRANCE DURING THE LAST WAR. I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO FIND ANYTHING SIMILAR AND HAVE BEEN TOLD IT WAS PROBABLY A COMMISSIONED FAMILY PORTRAIT, OBVIOUSLY A WEALTHY FAMILY. DUE TO THE SUBJECT THE PLAQUE COULD BE FRAMED AND HUNG ON IT'S OWN AS A NON RELIGIOUS PIECE AND IN MY OPINION LOOK STUNNING.
EQUALLY IF RESTORED THE PRAYER CHAIR WOULD MAKE A STUNNING FOCAL POINT IN ANY ROOM.
THE CHAIR IS STILL LOCATED IN SOUTH WEST FRANCE WHERE IT WAS FOUND, IT IS IN ORIGINAL CONDITION AND NEEDS TOTAL RESTORATION BUT THE VALUABLE PIECE WHICH IS THE PLAQUE IS PERFECTLY CONSERVED DUE TO HOW IT WAS COVERED WHEN HIDDEN.
ITEM WILL BE WELL WRAPPED AND PRICE INCLUDES FULLY INSURED COURIER COST.
