    Seascape sedan chair - 1725-1740. Versailles Arras. This chair, known as the “Seascape” chair, which has just been admirably restored, is a wonderful specimen of the forgotten art of carriage production under the Ancien Regime. Dating from the start of the reign of Louis XV, it is completely covered in ships in the style of Adrien Manglard, depicted within a virtuoso frame of trompe-l'oeil gilded paintwork, showing the interlacing letters 'C' and 'L'.

    This young chauffeur was 15 years old when this photo was taken in 1917! He actually killed a man in Oklahoma City by carelessly driving. The case was dismissed and the boy let go because he was "too young to prosecute." The days before child labor laws . . . Details: www.ancientfaces....
