Art Nouveau Period Pair of Carved Giltwood Antique Side Chairs, 20th Century
A perfectly designed and proportioned pair of giltwood side chairs, designed almost certainly by the firm of Louis Majorelle during the first years of the 20th century, they exhibit precise and gorgeous craftsmanship throughout their remarkably heavy frames. The design is loosely inspired by the curvy nature of the Rococo forms of the Louis XV era, but has an elegant and unique movement that shows the vision of a very talented designer. The chair back has a wonderful flow, the curvature of the pierced stiles changing abruptly in the rather stocky and rooted nature of the rear legs, these with bold reeding and sudden termination. The generous and comfortable seat is stuffed over the rail, the apron with a gentle arch around the three visible sides, the back of the chair with an exaggerated lift. Each knee is carved more with a certain knobby naturalism, the legs with just a gentle cabriole. For the interior designer and anyone passionate about the Art Nouveau movement, this is a very tasteful and perfectly designed suite that walks a fine balance between art and function. Measurements: 22" D x 18 1/2" W x 38 1/2" H x 19 1/2" H to seat Condition report: Upholstery in poor condition: dirty, discolored with wear. Wear to toes of each chair. Typical wear to gilded surfaces. Chairs appear to be free of any restoration. Very sturdy, strong and heavy.
