Seller: Top-Rated Seller wildstrawberrystore (668) 100%, Location: cambridgeshire, Ships to: GB, Item: 264307807795 On offer here is this fantastic pair of French Gilt wood Louis XVI style drawing-room armchairs circa 1900. We bought this pair of chairs from a dealer in Lyon in the south of France. Most of the copies of this style of chair are from the 1950s, these ones are from the turn of the last century circa 1900. We get lots of this style of chair that are painted white but it's very rare to see a pair of chairs like this that have been gilded in gold leaf. They are made of carved Beechwood which is carved in very fine detail and then gilded with gold leaf (not paint) just like a mirror or picture frame, the carved decoration is typical of this type of chair. It has acanthus leaves, C scrolls and flowers to decorate the arms legs and Crest rail. Other nice signs of its quality are the silk upholstery fabric which is of a very high quality and each panel is held in place by hundreds of brass headed pins. There is some wear to the arm pads and seat cushions (see pics) but I feel that this is very much in keeping with the style of chair and adds atmosphere rather than detracting from them in any way.Also some of the gold leaf has rubbed off on the crest trail and on the armrests (see pictures) but again I feel that this is acceptable patination. They are medium sized elegantly proportioned chair, (I am 6'2" and a sat in one quite easily and can say that they are comfortable).They also have down filled seat cushions. These two lovely chairs would bring a lot of style to any room in the house.Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or wish to see more pictures. They are over 100 years old so there is obviously some signs of age but they are structurally sound and there are no repairs.
