FRENCH LOUIS XVI STYLE CARVED WALNUT ARM CHAIRS
Circa 1890
Item # 708SHP09 


The crisp carved surface embellishment of these Neoclassical chairs is noteworthy, the hand carved detailing deep and exquisite.  The walnut has been burnished to a high glow from years of careful use, the mellowed patina most attractive throughout.  Along the top of the chair rail is a gorgeous floral display over a squared back finished with caning framed in the common twisted-rope motif.  The open arms curve down and terminate in well developed acanthus carved hand-holds over twist-turned columns, these flanking an early hand-stitched tapestry seat affixed with brass tacks.  The simple apron is highlighted with a repeated beading, the angular legs with the same twist-turnings of the columns and set over simple tapered feet.  They are a most pleasing pair in outstanding original condition and will certainly be a cherished addition to a classical interior.

Measurements:  28 1/8” W x 22” D x 38 1/4” H, 15 3/4” H to seat

Condition Report:
Some looseness in the arm columns, not concerning. Some chipping to carvings and beading. Tapestry in overall "good" condition with some minor stain/blemish.
