Code 415-52 Pair of Antique Louis XIV Style Walnut Wood Armchairs from France
These antique Louis XIV style armchairs have been hand carved out of French walnut wood and upholstered in a floral and foliate brocade on a cream ground color. The upholstery has been attached with bronze tulip motif nail heads. The hand carving is stunning with the terminals of the arms bearing lion’s head motifs. The lion’s manes are all deeply carved and flow up the arms gracefully. There is an abundance of acanthus leaf motifs and c-scrolls throughout with baluster legs and stretchers. The feet are called hairy lion’s paws because of the life-like lion’s hair motifs carved by the ebenist.
These wonderful armchairs will be an asset to any room they are placed in
