This beautiful pair of cabriolet armchairs are molded and carved in beech wood with a decoration of flowers and foliage.
They are stamped on the rear traverse by Pierre Bara, who was an excellent carpenter that specialized in chairs. These armchairs are proof of the expertise and talent of the carpenter.
The most obvious observation is the perfect balance of proportions and the very high quality of the beech wood. The scalloped shape on the top rail of the backrest is rare and the curvature of the armrests is in a remarkable “whiplash” form. The armrests are short yet perfectly round. There is also a beautiful decoration on the central area of the apron. On the entirety of the chair frame, the wood moulding is deep, precise, and robust.
The height and shape of the backrest of the cabriolet guarantees these armchairs to be wonderfully comfortable. These armchairs have been restored in the “rules of art” by a carpenter specialized in chairs and an upholsterer. They are both specialized in 18th century furniture. Both armchairs are in a very good state of conservation.
Pierre Bara became a Master on June 28, 1758. His workshop was located on rue de Cléry and he worked with the upholsterer Planque, who had a store on rue Saint-Honoré that was reputed for its luxury chairs. Pierre Bara’s pieces are relatively rare, fabricated with care, and are of high quality. He is reputed for his Louis XV chairs and especially for his cabriolets which have harmonious and original lines.
