The armchair we present is the sum of two influences, Lyonnaise for the form, with a very nervous line, largely inspired by the productions of Pierre Nogaret and Parisian, with a rocaille decoration characteristic of the productions of the Cresson family.
Such seats were massively produced by the carpenters of the Lower Rhone Valley for a Provencal clientele, very fond of rocaille decorations with acanthus leaves.
In addition to its perfect state of preservation and the finesse of its sculpture, our seat has superior proportions to seats of this type.
