Pair of Gilded Wood High Back Armchairs

This is a magnificent pair of large flat-back “à la Reine” armchairs. They are made out of luxurious gilded wood that has been finely carved. There are certain characteristics present in these armchairs that are reminiscent to the Louis XIV Period. For instance, the fabric always wraps over the top of the armchair, therefore exposing the nails because there is no top rail. They also always have slightly inclined backs. However, the height of the backs became shorter at the beginning of the Régence Period. When admired, the armchair’s luxurious details are revealed. The apron of the armchair is embellished with a shell and acanthus leaves, which are on a crisscross background. The armrests are set back and curvilinear as well as elegant. The arched feet give the armchair a feeling of movement.
