Presented for sale is an exquisite pair of early 19th century French painted beechwood Louis XV style petite Fauteuils or armchairs. The chairs have serpentine shaped backs with delicate floral and vine carvings and scrolled arms over a shaped and carved seat rail supported on cabriole legs. The padded backs and seats have been recently strengthened and reupholstered in a pleasing neutral burlap weave with European finished nail heads.
The chairs are in excellent aged condition; the painted finish so desired by collectors is naturally worn to perfection. The sinuous curves are in perfect proportion to each other, and the chairs are structurally sound.
Size: 33 ½” Height by 23 ½” Width by 20” Depth.
