A fine pair of Directoire armchairs in the Etruscan style

A fine pair of Directoire guilloche-carved and painted wallnut armchairs. Each with curved backrest joined by a baluster-shaped stretcher, above padded back, padded armrests on baluster-shaped supports, the seat raised on tapered baluster-shaped and sabre legs

Paris, Directoire period, circa 1790.

Those chairs are designed in the Etruscan style. With their Grecian scrolled backs and elegantly pillared legs in the Pompeian fashion, they relate to an armchair pattern invented for the celebrated ébéniste Georges Jacob by the architect Charles Percier (d.1838), or to other seats signed by Jean Baptiste Demay.
