This charming pair of Louis XV armchairs is the work of master Martin Delaporte, the scalloped belts are richly molded and carved with a leafy branch and a flower in the center of the high and low rails. The elegantly curved feet are molded and have a flower at the top, they end with a small volute on a shoe. The armrests are "whiplash" and the armrests have a cuff. These seats are stamped under the MDLP front cross member, a stamp attributed to Martin Delaporte.
Martin Delaporte was received as a Master in 1740, he was established in rue des Filles-Dieu-Saint-Sauveur. Monsieur Jean Nicolay tells us about him that under Louis XV he produced beautiful, well-balanced armchairs, simple but with exquisite lines reminiscent of the small simply molded armchairs of Sulpice Brizard.
In excellent condition, these beech seats have just been dismantled and reassembled, repainted as well as relined and re-upholstered in accordance with the rules of the art.
