Pair of French 19th Century Louis XVI Gold Gilt Wingback Bergères
A marvelous pair of gold gilt Louis XVI wingback bergères from 19th century France. These beautiful chairs are upholstered in a gold cut velvet, done in a geometric pattern, and secured to the frame with brass nail heads. The gilt frame is lustrous and gleaming with carved roses atop the top rail, and a twisted ribbon motif running down the sides. The chairs are lifted on carved, tapered legs that have been turned and fluted. They bring the seat to a height of 17". c.1860.
