C1720 French Regence Walnut Backstool or Side Chair
Enriched with wonderful, deep carving to the chair rails, this C1720 French chair is walnut. Pegged mortise and tenon joints ensure strength over the next few centuries: it worked for the Ancient Egyptians! The high back is a typical leftover form the reign of Louis XIV, but the smaller scale, and lively cabriole legs foreshadow the light elegant chairs of Louis XV. Reglued, polished, the chair is freshly upholstered in a Bargello or Flame Stitch fabric, a typical fabric choice of the time.
