ANTIQUE FRENCH LOUIS XVI-STYLE SALON CHAIR. GILDED ROCOCO DECORATION. 19th c
An antique French Louis XVI- s tyle, neo-classical salon chair with typical fluted legs and classical, rococo motif decoration. Sourced from a reputable French dealer. Antique French Louis XVI- s tyle, neo-classical salon chair. Is something of a decorator's piece, harking back to the decadent days of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette in France, and Casanova in Venice towards the end of the 18th c. Although Louis XVI only reigned from 1771 - 1793, the distinctive neo-classical style that took his name endured well into the 19th c. This pretty salon chair dates to the second half of the 19th c. With distressed patination to its gilded finish commensurate with age. It still retains its original pink velvet padded cushion, and 22 of the original 28 buttons. With its straight, fluted, tapering legs and back ribs inspired by Ancient Roman and Greek columns, and its geometric, angular frame decorated with classical laurel leaf, flowing ribbon, floral motifs and finials, it displays seminal Louis XVI style. Recently sourced from a highly reputable French dealer, this chair is something of a decorator's piece in original condition with no restoration.
