17th & 18th centuries Furniture and Statuary
Rare pair of walnut arm chairs from the early 17th century.
Each seat rests on a turned walnut base decorated with balusters.
The armrests have an elegant decor with a molded butt.
The quality of the turning, the wide proportions of the seat, the straight back, make it a characteristic testimony of the French production of the first half of the XVII° century.
The arm chair has been a seat of elegant society since the first half of the 17th century. Women can now use it, the fashion for cumbersome virtue having passed since the advent of Louis XIII.
H. 108 cm x W. 67 cm x D. 59 cm
