Original needle point upholstery
Perfect condition

During the first half of the seventeenth century chairs evolve towards a new model today known as Louis XIII foreshadowing the armchair. Chairs adopt a widen and lower silhouette. Horizontal lines prevail. Cushions disappear supplanted by horse hair upholstery.

This chair stands on four feet linked by an H-shaped spacer and a frontal cross-bar. Legs, spacers, cross-bar and arm-rests are all turned as rosary beads intertwined with cubes.

The back-rest stays upright.

This charming chair still presents its original needle point upholstery.

The unity and quality of the wood turning, particularly for the rosary beads elements, demonstrate the cabinet-makers’ skills. This exceptional chair characterizes the 17th century French production.
