C1890 PAIR Louis XVI style Fauteuil Armchairs

$1,450.00 the PAIR

A very fine pair of late 19th century French Louis XVI style fauteuil en cabriole (open armchairs with a concave back) with original paintwork, tight frames, and probably original fragile silk upholstery. The chairs are edged with rinceau (riband and thread) carving, and the legs are fluted. The balloon shaped backs commemorate the 1783 flight of the Montgolfier Brothers at Versailles.
