C1870 Pair Napoleon III gilt, painted Louis XVI Revival Fauteuil, Aubusson Tapestry.

$3,950.00 the opulent pair


This wonderful pair of large Parisian Louis XVI Revival fauteuil armchairs is painted grey with gilding. The patination of this is very fetching. The fine Aubusson tapestry covers are a distinguishing luxury. Finely carved acanthus leaves decorate the arms and arm supports. The tapering legs are fluted and the edge carving is rinceau: thread and ribbon. They date from the tail end of the Second Empire, Napoleon III period. Napoleon III's Empress, Eugenie, was fixated upon Marie Antoinette, the Martyr Queen, so much Louis XVI revival furniture was made during their glittering reign.
