Pair of neoclassical style Lapis Lazuli and gilt bronze chairs. French, 20th century Dimensions: Height 87cm, width 42cm, depth 45cm Crafted from lapis lazuli, these unusual chairs are mounted throughout with Neoclassical Empire style gilt bronze mounts, referencing both Ancient Egyptian culture and Ancient Rome. The lapis lazuli body of each side chair is boxy in shape, with two heavy-set square profile back legs, and a rectangle shaped backrest. The front two legs, however, are gilt bronze winged sphinxes, culminating in a paw on ball foot. The backrest is profusely decorated with classical gilt bronze mounts, including two flanking columns either side, vases, goddess figures, profile busts and foliate details. The centre of the backrest is open, with crossed arrows and an Apollo mask in the centre of a circular laurel wreath. The seat is finished with a cream upholstery.
