ANTIQUE FRENCH LIVING ROOM SET WITH GOBELIN IN LOUIS XVI STYLE

This is an antique complete living room set made around 1880. The living room set was made in a Louis XVI style. It was recently re-upholstered with gobelin material. Gobelin is a typical French Louis XVI fabric style. The set consists of a corbeille sofa with 6 chairs. It has a handmade frame. The fabric shows a story of people playing in a French garden. It is a painting on fabric: The swing - Jean-Honoré Fragonard. Please take a look at the last photo for the painting. "The painting depicts a young man hidden in the bushes, watching a woman on a swing, being pushed by an elderly man, almost hidden in the shadows, and unaware of the lover. As the lady goes high on the swing, she lets the young man take a furtive peep under her dress, all while flicking her own shoe off in the direction of a Cupid and turning her back to two angelic cherubim on the side of the older man.
