Armchairs Louis XVI
A pair of Louis XVI-style armchairs in gilt beechwood. French, circa 1900…
With slightly curved, horseshoe-shaped backrests, curved armrests accentuated with stylized acanthus leaf and scroll motifs, a generous rounded seat, and tapered and fluted legs topped with rosettes.
Very fine and detailed ‘piaster frieze’ carving accentuates the lovely outline of these chairs. Covered in a light blue velvet fabric.
Louis XVI style, circa 1900.
Excellent condition overall. Structurally sound. Small losses and wear to the gilding. Fabric in good condition overall with the exception of a small blemish to one of the seats (see picture).
Provenance: from the Pierre Lécoules collection, from the sale of the private collection items of his apartment (the contents of the antique shop at 62, rue Taitbout were sold in October 2019). Founded by his father in 1905 and a fixture for almost 100 years, the Parisian dealers were influential suppliers who specialized in important French furniture from the second half of the 19th century, including works by Dasson, Durand, Zwiener, Sormani and Beurdeley.
