Antique and Vintage French Prayer Chair Product Details
41.50H x 21W x 23.25D
This handsome antique French prayer chair or prie-dieu is finely crafted in cherry wood and upholstered with green velvet. The antique prayer chair is a superb example of traditional French craftsmanship, dating to about 1890. We found the magnificent prayer chair on our recent antiques buying trip to France. Notice the decorative shell on the back of the chair and the turned spindle posts, all adding to the decorative appeal of this fine prie-dieu, which means pray god in French. The chair features an elbow or prayer book rest on the back rise, upholstered in rich green velvet, so as you kneel you can easily rest your arms in prayer or use the rest to support your prayer book. It is heart-warming to imagine how many other devout worshippers have also paid their religious devotions at this antique French cherry wood prayer chair over more than a century since it was crafted in 1890.
