Suite of 3 armchairs in carved wood, with flat back called "à la reine". They are in natural walnut richly carved.
The belts are decorated with a leafy decoration with a flower in the center, and the upper crosspiece of the back is centered with a pomegranate in a cartouche with a leafy decoration on both sides. The legs and arm brackets are strongly curved and decorated with acanthus leaves and inverted shells at the top of the front legs.
These seats are of good appearance, of sufficient width to offer excellent comfort, but of perfectly proportioned dimensions. The use of walnut, the openness of the arms, and the decorative repertoire, establishes that these seats were made in the Rhone Valley (south of France) around 1750.
These armchairs are in a magnificent state of preservation. The woods have been restored, and this appears to be the first disassembly since the mid 18th century. The woods are very sound and there are no major repairs or breaks. The tapestry has been completely redone, and the fabric is a Rubelli production with custom trimmings.
