PAIR OF FRENCH LOUIS XV STYLE GILTWOOD FAUTEUILS
Circa 1900 with original gilding and a fine carved surface
Item # 801WIZ27 


This striking pair of Louis XV style fauteuils retain an original and rather early gilding naturally worn down to the gesso in some areas over a vibrant carved surface.  The chairs exhibit a skilled carver’s hand, the displays mostly of acanthus and foliate inspiration borrowing heavily from the Rococo period, the crest rail with hints of the rocaille amongst C-scrolls.  These are crisp and beautiful, particularly as the raised portions have worn and the gilding becomes highlights within the crevices of the more trafficked carvings.  Both chairs are left in their original upholstery with horsehair stuffing so that clients can work with their own upholsterer to have them covered to suite the intended room.  Sleek and subtle with their thin cabriole legs and undulating curvatures, they are a most striking pair of chairs.  We may also have the matching settee and another pair of matching chairs available still in the shop.

Measurements:  25 1/2 W x 20 3/8 D x 37 1/4 H, 15 H to seat

Condition Report:
Upholstery in poor condition: springs need to be retied, covering needs to be changed, joint separations can be tightened at the same time.  Wear to gilding and a few areas of chipping, notably in the knees.
