Lyon work circa 1750
Height 101cm - Width 69cm - Seat depth 62cm
This pair of flat-back armchairs is indisputably a Lyonnais work, in carved walnut. One obviously thinks of Pierre Nogaret, the region's famous carpenter, but these chairs are not signed. The classic characteristics of Lyonnais chairs are evident, with arms that are more open than those produced in Paris, the absence of cuffs, and sinuous, deeply molded uprights and crosspieces in beautiful walnut. The carving is meticulous, its sobriety emphasizing the balanced lines and quality of the molding. The comfortable width of the seats is well proportioned to the elegantly shouldered backrests.
The condition of these armchairs is good, with the original woods in their entirety, and no "antures" or fractures to report. The ends of the legs are slightly worn, especially on one of the two armchairs, as can be seen in the photos. These seats were restored over 20 years ago, but the condition of the fabric is absolutely impeccable, with no wear or stains. The mounts are still perfectly assembled, and these seats are solid and in usable condition. Comfort is still good. The absence of recent restorations enables us to offer these armchairs " à la Reine " at a very attractive price.
