Pair of French Louis XVI Style Gilded Antique Side Chairs France, probably c. 1890-1910

Pair of French Louis XVI Style Gilded Antique Side Chairs, France, probably c. 1890-1910

Item # 130001DSF27

This is a beautiful pair of fine French Louis XVI Style Antique Side Chairs with bright gilded surfaces. They feature an overwhelmingly square profile, a sense of symmetry in the parallel lines giving a clean and undisturbed air to the chairs. The crest is a work of art, a laurel wreath with outward flowing foliage over the square molding of the chair backs, this lined with a thin beading. The back is stuffed and comfortable, the seat deep and well sprung, both making this a very functional and relaxing pair of antique chairs for formal sitting areas of the home. They rest over turned and tapered legs with a fluted shaft terminating over attached round ball feet.

These are an outstanding pair of chairs for an interior designer or home decorator, bright and cheery, the entire frames very well carved and quite striking. Every room in your home has a space that would be improved with a pair of this quality, making them very flexible for decor, a style that will never tire or require updating. We would recommend the upholstery is changed, but that is a matter of personal preference.

Measurements: 35" high x 21" deep x 19 1/2" wide; 17 1/2" high to the seat

Condition Report: Left chair's (facing in the main picture) right leg has two cracks along the grain from shrinking and expanding over the years, the ball foot reattached and slightly crooked. It is still very sturdy and does not require restoration, but is visually noteworthy. Both chairs have been recently regilded, probably in the last decade. Upholstery is in "fair" condition with many spots and stains. Loose joints between the chair back and seat frame of both chairs. Minor dings, chips and abrasions, as expected in any antique pair of chairs. Overall, a very handsome pair of chairs.
