Pair of Louis XVI Fauteuils

A pair of 18th century fauteuils.

These are the real deal. From the top.....

The chairs have a gendarme-topped crown, in the manner of a soldier's hat, surmounted with two turned and finely carved finials.

The chairs' bookmatched gold-leafed neverending carving flows outward from the crown of the chairs to the boxed parterre supporting the finials mentioned above. The neverending chain (money-chain carving) continues, leading down into the chairs' arms.

The padded arms are supported by a gainsborough-shaped arches, which in turn are supported by the chairs' typical Louis XVl/Dircectoire fluted and carved legs.

 

The finish on the chairs is a grey gesso, highlighted with 24 carat gold.

Katrina has chosen a gorgeous upholstery fabric, and the upholsterer has managed to double pipe the edges, perfectly enhancing the fabric's lovely diagonal stripe.

Pure class!
