Russian antique furniture offers "astonishing effect"
06/07/2010
Antique furniture from Russia is a stunning amalgamation of styles from further south in Europe.

Lanto Synge, author of Mallett Millennium, explains how fine furniture makers in the country adopted and adapted the characteristics of items made in other parts of the continent.

Its quality may be one reason behind their long-lasting nature, with a considerable number of Russian antique chairs still in operation today.

And it is a sofa Mr Synge points to as an example of the tremendous craftsmanship found in Moscow and beyond more than 200 years ago.

Originating circa 1790, the mahogany sofa features traditionally strong neo-classical forms and fluted legs, but with an unusual scale and rhythm.

Collectors wishing to add Russian work to their own portfolio may be interested in a number of items currently available at Mallett, such as an occasional table, which may be the perfect piece to offset a fine antique chair.ADNFCR-3033-ID-19874860-ADNFCR
