Here we have a gorgeous pair of I believe antique (1880-1920) Continental European unique chairs. They are gilt wood with a design I have been searching for and not able to find. I would guess French Empire but after hours of research, could not find any comparable pieces. Spiral tapered legs and swag arms with a beautiful crest and carved laurel or acanthus leaves and what I love are the "wings" that almost look like horizontal columns. Large but not terribly heavy.
They have been reupholstered in the last 40 years I would guess and measure about 31 1/2" wide, 30.75" tall and the arms are about 29 1/4" wide. They are in very good condition with just a few slight wood nicks here and heavy gilt loss to arms showing red undercoat. To have these re-gilded with gold leaf would make them even better. Nice and comfortable and the look is fantastic.
