Set of Eight French Vintage Dining Chairs with Cane Seats and Backs, Circa 1950


This set of eight French dining chairs from the mid 20th century features slightly slanted caned backs that are rounded on the upper rails and adorned with delicate twisted wooden ribbons. The seats, also upholstered with cane, are each raised on two elegant fluted legs in the front, reminiscent of the Louis XVI styles, while the back legs are saber, showing an influence from the Empire era. With its nice proportions, elegant lines and discreet décor, this set of petite French dining chairs (all sides) circa 1950 would work beautifully around any dining table.
