Pair of French 19th Century Gold Gilt Louis XV Armchairs
Dimensions: 39 3/4″H x 26″W x 28 1/2″D
A brilliant pair of gold gilt fauteuils, made in France towards the beginning of the 19th century. The pair have been more recently upholstered in a silk fabric depicting fruiting branches. These Louis XV armchairs have a carved frame that is finished in wonderfully preserved, lustrous gold gilt. Sinuous lines, hallmarks of the classic Louis XV design, are incorporated into the chair’s rails, with lovely cabriole legs emerging from them and terminating in escargot feet.
