C1770 Swedish Gustavian Chair in White

$775.00 of Swedish Style.


Late 18th century neoclassical, this medallion back chair in the Louis XVI style is Swedish and Gustavian. It has always been painted white. The new claret moire upholstery contrasts well with the light paint. Too poor for lavish gilding, and subject to long, dark Winters, the Swedes often painted chairs and tables a cheerful (and visible) white or pale grey. Closely copying French furniture of the time, the chair shows turned legs with flutes and cables. Reglued and with new upholstery this decorative and practical chair is ready to grace any home, ground or 60th floor.
