Pair of lounge chairs, circa 1730
These lounge chairs have flat backs. Made of finely carved ash wood, then lacquered, off-white and water green, these queen's chairs were made during the Louis XV Period, in the north of France or in Belgium. Indeed it is rather beech or walnut that was used in Paris, oak and ash further north.
These seats rest on curved legs, and have a harmonious decoration of acanthus leaves, sculpted flowers and foliage, on the shoulders, on the top of the back and around the belt. The balance of the curves is perfect, the proportions between the back and the seat are remarkable. These chairs have been restored and are upholstered in Colloni fabric. The state of conservation is excellent, all the woods are original and the restorations are of use.
