French Louis XVI Style Green Painted Bergere Arm Chair Newly Upholstered, c. 1890-1910 Item # 120001TWW12
This is a simply gorgeous French Louis XVI Style Painted Bergere (Antique Arm Chair), crafted during the late 19th to early 20th Century. It features a sloped crest highlighted at the center with a carved floral embellishment, the exposed frame molded and flowing into curved handholds over arm supports that join directly into the frame. The form is predominantly round, the arms wrapping around the frame to create a cocoon around the seated, the entire chair resting over carefully carved tapered and fluted legs, the top embellished with a ring of acanthus carving.
With a brand new upholstery, just completed and entirely fresh, this chair is a simply gorgeous piece. The seat cushion is feather stuffed, the rest of the chair retaining it's original horsehair stuffing, combined to be both supportive and very comfortable. This is a piece you will enjoy regularly, a sturdy and strong piece that will bring life and great character to any room in your home.
