Pair of carved wooden armchairs, Italy, first half of the 18th century, Louis XV period
The delightful pair of armchairs is made in Italy (Venice) in the first half of the 18th century. They are of solid walnut wood, finely carved with rocaille motifs characteristic of the Louis XV era. The carvings create low-relief phytomorphic elements of great plasticity and elegance. The backrest, pentagonal in shape, mixed and moved has a particular very balanced inclination, which allows the seats both to be comfortable and to be comfortably placed or to be able to approach the armchairs to a wall without creating an obvious detachment. The armrests are curved and end with a curl sculpture. The arched legs and moves, enriched by carvings end with curly foot.
The armchairs are in good condition and are very solid and stable, suitable to be used. They can be thought of in a room next to sofas, as head of the table, on the sides of a console or a dresser and are pleasant both close to antique and modern furnishings.
