C1760 set 4 Louis XV Period Chairs

$8,250.00 set of four

A charming and well proportioned set of four 18th century c1760, Louis XV polished beechwood chairs. These beautiful chairs were originally caned, but the upholstered seats and backs make them more useful for contemporary life. They had been converted to upholstery long before we bought them. We have tactfully glued and added glue blocks to ensure they can stand up better than any new wooden chairs to years of spirited dining table discussion. Just recovered by our skilled, second generation, Italian upholsterer, Carlo,  in a gold woolen damask.  They are in particularly good condition for chairs 250 years old. Mortise, tenon and pegged construction throughout: the best cabinetmaking techniques, tried and tested for several thousand years now. Found by the Ancient Egyptians to be suitably durable!
