These marvelous Louis XVI chairs are in the excellent condition and will be the perfect addition to your collection. The chairs have an elegant rococo floral design throughout the piece, beige silk style background garnished with calm deep blue, red and yellow tones. The refined balance of this pair of chairs is exceptional, the proportions of the seat in relation to the frame most pleasing. Very fine “infinite” molding flows around all three sides of the apron and around the seat back, the square crest flanked on either corner by pyramidal acanthus embellished finials.
The open arms feature sharply carved acanthus over the handholds and along the base of the curving arm support over the rosette carved corners. The chairs rest over stop-fluted tapering legs. A gorgeous beige paint is the primary color for the surface. The chairs wonderfully stuffed and comfortable with a polyester over the sprung and webbed under structure. The chairs are both very comfortable and supportive. They are a most magnificent pair of classic fauteuils. Each chair roughly measures as follows: their height is 33” inches, the seat width is 25” inches, wide seat is 22,5", arm span is 24,5” inches and the distance across back is 21,5” inches. The back alone measures 18,5” inches tall and 23” inches wide and the distance from the leg to the seat is 15,5” inches. The height of the seat to the arm is 8,5” inches. The pair of chairs used to belong to Bunny Mellon, a Pittsburgh Socialite.
During the time of Louis XVI of France, the last king of France before the French Revolution, the Rococo, or Late Baroque Style was very widespread. Rococo emerged in France between 1710 and 1750 and was characterized by exuberant ornamentation, designs inspired by nature and a soft and feminine color palette. While it originated in France, called ‘style rocaille’ at the time, it soon spreaded across Europe, particularly northern Italy, Austria, southern Germany, Central Europe and Russia.
The chairs come with a free certification of authenticity and a $40,000.00 insurance value!
