Pair, Antique French Louie XVI Velvet Armchairs
We fell in love with the organic, old patina of these gold painted Louie XVI pair of arm chairs. Maybe it's the vitruvian scrolled arms or the contrast of old paint next to the newer dark blackish/grey velvet.
Rather than being a solid opaque gold, the worn patina has given the chairs a favorited finish. The details of the carved frames, such as the oval backs, the vitruvian scrolls on the arms, column fluted legs, and scrolled arm terminals. Caned sides. The chairs are in good strong condition. The fabric has very minor surface wear. Caning is in very good condition. Seats are not strong and stable. Painted gold finish is chippy with patina and wear. Seat height 17" Arm height 25"
