19th Century Pair of French Louis XVI Style Painted Armchairs

$3,400per set

About

Gorgeous pair of painted 19th century French lounge armchairs in a Louis XVI style. French country or Provincial from circa 1880. Beautifully carved with indented back splat edging, turned arm rests, indented and figured base on 4 beautifully turned fluted legs. They have been recently painted/distressed and re-upholstered in a crème or alabaster colored waterproof linen fabric, even on the rear of the back splat and the arm rests. Exceptional quality and 'currently in vogue' items!!! Very rare to find a pair of these chairs in such great condition. Provincial furniture: 'Provincial" furniture is the term used to describe pieces of furniture that were made in the more rural and rustic parts of the Country involved. Generally speaking, provincial pieces tend to be made from easily accessible local woods such as oak, ash and maple. Designs tended to be simpler in form than pieces made in the major cities. The major cities had greater access to more exotic imported woods and designs tended to be more intricate and inspired by the prevailing global trends. Wealth also had a large part to play in most provincial pieces. Clearly, the wealthy people of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries wanted only the best available and would buy their furniture from high-end city retailers or manufacturers and often had then specifically made for them on commission. Ordinary folk could not afford this but would instead rely upon local cabinet makers for their furniture needs.
