Pair of 19th Century French Louis XVI Gilded Armchairs, Fauteuils

$4,900per set

About

Pair of 19th century French Louis XVI Gilded armchairs ~ fauteuils are a rare find because of their size! Typical chairs from the era are smaller, so these were obviously custom ordered for what is now a more 21st century physique. Intricately carved with Greek coin bordering around the oval, contoured seatback and the entire seat, they also feature quatrefoil overlay on the face of the contoured armrests, with acanthus plumes above and below. Plumes also appear on the seatback supports. Acanthus rosettes grace the plinth blocks above each tapered and fluted column leg. Upholstery should be replaced, circa 1890s. Each measures: 43 H x 25 W x 31.5 D, seat 18.5 H.
