C1880 PAIR Louis XVI style Fauteuil Armchairs

$1,500.00 the elegant PAIR


An elegant, finely carved, opulently decorated PAIR of open armchairs, in the Louis XVI style, but made C1880. They are still robustly constructed in the manner perfected by the Ancient Egyptians: mortise, tenon and pegged. The current decoration is in white and gold. At some stage it was eau de Nil, the wonderful French Green. The carving is finely executed, and the roses at the top are very impressive. The legs are fluted and cabled.

92 cm tall. 60 cm deep and 60 cm wide. Sprung seats. The seat is oval, and there are square bosses wher the raiusl meet the legs. Altogether a chair of very sophisticated design, and skilled construction.

We also have a single identical fauteuil armchair ($750)) and a set of four side chairs (chaise) ($1850 set of 4). These constituted part of a bedroom suite. The bed and its domed canopy have already been sold.
