C1880 set 4 XVI Louis XVI Chairs, Dining Chairs

$1,850.00 set 4


A set of 4  elegant, finely carved, opulently decorated standard chairs (chaise), 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 they were 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.

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

We also have a pair of identical fauteuil armchairs ($1500) and a single ($750). These constituted part of a bedroom suite. The bed and its domed canopy have already been sold.
