French 19th Century Louis XVI Upholstered Bergère
Dimensions: 44″H x 28″W x 26 1/2″D
An extraordinarily well-carved walnut Louis XVI style wingback bergère from 19th century France. The chair has been more recently upholstered in a scarlet, tangerine and sunrise orange printed fabric that can also be found on the accompanying bolster pillow. The shaped top rail is crowned with two beautifully-carved roses from which extends a carved twisted-ribbon motif that continues down the sides and arms, down to the chair’s apron. The apron front is done in a carved lamb’s tongue with a lovely knotted ribbon carved in the center. The chair has four tapered legs that have been turned and fluted.
Seat height: 17″
