PAIR OF FRENCH LOUIS XVI STYLE DISTRESSED GRAY FAUTEUIL ARM CHAIRS
Circa 1st half of the 20th century, very high quality craftsmanship
Item # 705JBP14O 


A most attractive pair of chairs in the Louis XVI taste, both have their own sense of originality of interpretation of this classical form, particularly in the legs which have a distinct swell into the seat frame.  The rosette motifs in the corners are stylized with softness and simplicity, a departure from the generally sharp applied rosettes of more traditional forms.  The angular reeding that flows through the legs and up the arm supports lends a lightness of form and emphasizes the thin profile of the legs.  Most attractive is the gorgeous worn surface, a blend of warm grays over a red-oxide that glows through in areas that have worn away.  The recesses of the reeding and molding are highlighted with this same red-oxide, matching the velour covering beautifully.  A finely hand carved display of floral buds finishes the crest of each chair.

These are a heavy and very finely crafted pair of chairs - they were built to last the test of time, having held up beautifully and remaining young in joints. 

Measurements:  24 1/4” W x 21” D x 36 1/2” H, 16” H to seat

Condition Report:
Old mellow covering with some discoloration and fading.  Heavily distressed surface throughout.  All joints very sturdy and strong, both chairs very comfortable and supportive.
