Presented for sale is a pair of delicately carved Louis XV style tabourets in a blanc de plomb finish highlighted in gilt. They have padded seats and are supported on finely chiseled cabriole legs. These tabourets were part of a suite of furniture that once graced the formal living rooms of a minor German castle. According to the Provenance that we have been provided, this suite of furniture was carved specifically for this castle by German furniture masters that had been trained in France during the 19th century.
They are superbly carved; the detail is exceptional. Both are structurally sound and still attain the original polychrome finish and gilding. As can be seen in our pictures, there is minor wear to the finish and gilding.
