19th Century Carved Painted Dining Room Chairs with Aubusson Tapestry -Set of 12

$28,000per set

About

Decorate a dining room with this exceptional suite of twelve antique and colorful chairs; crafted in Paris, France, circa 1820, each large chair stands on elegant cabriole legs decorated with acanthus and floral motifs, ending with escargot feet over a "X" stretcher with a central floral medallion. Each chair features a wide and deep seat for ultimate comfort over a scalloped apron decorated with foliage and shell motifs; it is upholstered with the original handwoven floral Aubusson tapestry. The tall and pitched back is also dressed with the same Aubusson tapestry and embellished with decorative brass nailheads around the edges. These rare and important chairs are in excellent condition commensurate with age and use, and adorn the original rubbed and patinated painted finish in the light grey palette, and colorful tapestry in the blue, green, red and beige colors. A one of a kind dining room suite! Aubusson, a town on the river Creuse in central France, became a center of tapestry manufacturing in the 17th and 18th centuries during the reigns of Louis XIV and Louis XV. Aubusson became the source for the aristocracy, hence the typically monumental sizes of Aubusson rugs and tapestries. Employing a method known as "warping" and executed on a low horizontal loom, the weavers of Aubusson were able to create an illusion of depth in their works. Aubusson textiles are also usually identified by their stylized framing motifs and neoclassical themes. Measures: 22" W x 21" D x 44.5" H.
