PAIR C1780 Louis XVI Period Fauteuil (Open Armchairs) , Red Needlework Upholstery.

$5,250.00 the bright and elegant pair.


An eagle-eyed person would notice this is a near pair, two almost identical chairs. They are both C1780, so Louis XVI in style and period. The patina on the painted surface is very satisfying, and the vintage red floral needlework is very attractive. Marie Antoinette was Queen when these were made in Paris, but we cannot guarantee she and the chairs were ever in the same room, but it might have happened! The chairs are both comfortable and space efficient. Chapeau a Gendarme type fauteuil, with fluted legs.
86 cm tall, 50 cm deep and 57 cm wide.
