Very pretty and well made antique C19th French Louis XV style salon armchair.
We have two of these fauteuil chairs and a further two side chairs which are listed separately, you may purchase the two chairs by altering the number required to two in the quantity box. Price is for ONE chair. The matching side chairs have another listing.
The chair has good floral carving to the crest, apron, arms and knees, with shapely cabriole legs and knurl feet. Currently the upholstery is very tired and in need of recovering although the padding appears firm and in original condition. The chair would be lovely with a linen, stripe or toile covering.
The condition of the wooden chair frame is generally good for a nineteenth century piece, there are the usual scuffs and nibbles and a little looseness in the joints as the animal glue has dried over the years. I believe the timber is walnut. The quality of the carving is excellent, these are handcrafted pieces.
Size approx back H38 inches, arm H25 inches, seat H18 inches, back W20 inches, arm W25 inches, seat W24 inches, seat D21 inches, overall D26 inches.
