Pair of Early Blue Painted Rococo Side Chairs, circa 1750


These rare chairs have great form with a fan shaped carving on the crest and old leather seats. The apron echoes the same fan shape as the crest and the legs have intricate carvings at the top and bottom, which is unusual. The old blue paint is a wonderful compliment to the leather seats. Measures: 40” high 20” wide 17” deep 19” seat height.
