C1740 Louis XV Painted Fauteuil a la Reine Armchair


A spectacularly elegant and charming 1740s Louis XV style and period fauteuil a la Reine (open armchair with a flat back, in spite of what Google translate tells you!), this chair has been re-glued for your safety, with great care not to disturb the delicious patina of the painted surface. we have chosen a  velvet damask in the colours of "grey" plants. This exceptional chair has quite a steep rake to the back, rather like a racing car seat. This is one of the best 18th century chairs we have had for some time.

93 cm tall and 65 cm wide, it is a perfect relaxation and napping chair. Possibly not great for the posture, but who cares!
