FRENCH LOUIS XVI STYLE ANTIQUE FAUTEUILS ARM CHAIRS, Late 19th Century
Item # 1408UXY10P
This very attractive pair of French fauteuils were created during the last quarter of the 19th Century, the craftsmanship and care throughout quite noteworthy. The frames are intricately embellished with deep three dimensional representations of waterleaves within a squared border. The crest is flanked on either side by pyramidical finials draped in the carved acanthus, this same motif employed in in the hand holds, along the arm supports and wrapped around the top of both front legs. The carved workmanship is pristine and well preserved, the recesses retaining early oxidized finish remnants under wax. The covering is not in terrible shape, actually being in rather serviceable condition, but with the discoloration typical of velour (which tends to hold dirt and grime more than other fabrics).
Measurements: 22" D x 24 1/4" W x 37 1/8" H; approximately 16 1/2" - 17 1/2" H to seat
