Pair of French Mid-20th Century Oval Back Armchairs with Nicely Carved Accents

$3,650per set


A pair of French carved wood and upholstered bergères chairs from the mid-20th century. This vintage pair of armchairs from France each feature oval-shaped upholstered backs with a wood frame accentuated with spiraled ribbon carved trim and pierced bow at its top rail. Acanthus leaf accents wrap the knuckles and each front side posts, just above the legs. There are manchette padded arms with carved curled knuckles. The seat and front rail are curvy, with a bow shaped front, carved with the same spiraled ribbon decor and adorn with rosette at the knees. The chairs are raised upon cylindrical fluted legs which taper gently towards their feet. The backs, seats, and arm pads have all been newly upholstered in a neutral Belgian linen. The wood on this pair of French armchairs has a scraped finish with remnants of cream over green paint showing in various areas.
