Set of Eight Maison Jansen Dining Chairs Each Having a Custom Painted Back Rest

About

A very fine set of eight Maison Jansen dining room chairs each having a custom painted back rest depicting a musical scene or instrument. These wonderfully decorative Hollywood Regency style dining chairs all have hand painted backrests. Each on a parcel paint decorated and gilt gold frame in the Louis XVI style. This piece is accompanied by a letter of Authentication from James Archer Abbott, Author of 'Designing Camelot: the Kennedy White House Restoration' as well as both Jansen Furniture Books. We are proud to boast that we are the only facility in the country that can produce such authentication. James Archer Abbott serves as Director and Curator of Johns Hopkins University’s Evergreen Museum Library – one of two museums owned and operated by the university. Mr. Abbott's publications include the following exhibition catalogs: Visions of Washington Irving: Selections from the Collections of Historic Hudson Valley (co-author, 1991); classical to 19th century America: The Influence of Berry Tracy on the Historical Interior (1994); and A Frenchman in Camelot: The Decoration of the Kennedy White House by Ste´phane Boudin (1995). Mr. Abbott co-wrote with Elaine Rice a further exploration of the Kennedy White House de´COR, entitled Designing Camelot: The Kennedy White House Restoration, which was published by Van Nostrand Reinhold in 1998. In 2006, he completed a well-received history of the international design firm Jansen (1880-1989), entitled; JANSEN, and published by Acanthus Press, LLC. This was followed by a companion volume, Jansen Furniture, published in spring 2007.
