PAIR OF FRENCH LOUIS XVI STYLE CARVED WALNUT FAUTEUILS
Early 20th century
Item # 703RBG20P 


A most attractive pair of arm chairs in the Louis XVI taste crafted during the first quarter of the 20th century, both are carved of a dense walnut and retain early and beautifully patinated surfaces.  The crest rail has a carved gadrooning across the soft bow, flanked on either side by plumed finials.  Insets in the upper corners of the upholstered back follow the form of the crest rail, this upholstery deeply stuffed and edged with brass tacks.  The stiles on either side of the upholstered back are columnar and allow daylight between the back and the columns; these are perfectly tapered with fluting along the full length and flowing into the arms.  An inordinately crisp repeated laurel leaf is carved in the molding throughout the frame and applied floral rosettes highlight each major corner.  The chairs rest over tapered and turned legs with fluting over toupie feet.  A most comfortable pair crafted with precision and a delicate airy form.  

Measurements:  38 1/2” H x 25” W x 22” D, 16 1/2” H to seat
