$7,600

About

A fine Louis XVI period bergère in beech by French menuisier Sulpice Brizard, born 1735, master 1760, stamped under seat rail. Carved with acanthus leaves, beading, paterae, and fluting on the legs, the chair is an excellent example of the highest quality fom this period. The chair is a larger scale than most 18th century examples, which is good for contemporary bodies. It is currently upholstered in a silk brocade fabric. Brizard's pieces are featured in various museums including the Met, the Louvre and others as examples of the finest in French 18th century design.
