Patinated bronze and galvanized copper with leather upholstered cushion

creator

Lalanne, Claude

condition

Overall in very good condition. The bronze surfaces have been sensitively cleaned by a professional metalwork conservator. When viewed in person, the patinated bronze displays a rich gold surface with subtle red undertones. With a few minor remnants of oxidation to the recessed portions of the design, consistent with age and gentle use. The galvanoplastie cabbage leaves display highly nuanced red hues which contrast beautifully with the gilt bronze and present with light surface soiling to the recessed portions of the design and very minor oxidation consistent with age and gentle use. The leather seat cushion displays a crocodile skin motif and presents with minor wear and a few light surface scratches consistent with age and gentle use. En suite with lot 53, this chair is a masterwork by Claude Lalanne with superb sculptural presence. The offering presents collectors a unique opportunity to acquire a pair of "Crocodile" armchairs.
