French 19th Century Louis XV St. Belle Epoque Period Giltwood Armchairs
Item # 8186
A stunning pair French 19th century Louis XV st. Belle Epoque period giltwood armchairs. Each opulent chair is raised by cabriole legs, the front retaining their original casters below most elegantly carved movements. The arbalest shaped frieze displays a finely carved central seashell cabochon amidst foliate designs. The wonderfully scrolled arms are richly decorated with carved foliate and fluted patterns leading to the cushioned arm support centered by scrolls. The elongated and uniquely shaped cushioned back support is also upholstered at the back. A most decorative giltwood border with a fluted design leads up to a most intricately carved seashell floral central reserve with fine foliate and carved flowers. All original gilt.
Seat Height: 21"
