Rare desk chair in solid walnut.
Model of gondola form resting on four legs with cut sides decorated with large flutes, connected to the crosspieces by dice with flowers.
Very good condition.
Upholstery traditionally redone by our workshop (horsehair on straps)
Covered with a Havana color leather.
Attributed to Pierre Pillot, Nîmes around 1780.
Height : 85 cm ; Width : 60 cm ; Depth : 55 cm
Provenance : Montpellier private collection
Our opinion :
With its wide legs with cut sides and its walnut wood, the desk chair that we present is a characteristic example of the production of the Nîmes carpenter Pierre Pillot.`
If the master has left us many chairs, few office chairs have come down to us.
As usual he uses a curved shape still very Louis XV that he embellishes with neoclassical ornamentation, including deep grooves that are signature.
