Pair of Louis XV cabriolet armchairs stamped Louis DELANOIS
These pretty cabriolet models, carved on beech and lacquered, reveal the skill and taste of Louis Delanois (received master on July 27, 1761)
The proportions are ample, the structure is both powerful and supple, the lines elegantly wavy, with recessed armrest consoles connecting harmoniously to the waistband.
Another characteristic of this famous Parisian carpenter resides at the top of the feet, whose moldings draw a sort of Y in which a floweret is inscribed here.
We find this floral pattern on the belt of the seat as well as on the top of the backrests.
Our pair of armchairs is covered with a beautiful silk in perfect condition, in tones matching the lacquer.
L.62 cm x D. 60 cm x H. 89 cm

Stamped Louis Delanois (received master July 27, 1761)
Louis Delanois is one of the great carpenters of the 18th century. This craftsman left countless seats, both in the Louis XV and Louis XVI style, all of which testify to a first-rate talent.
After starting out in a modest workshop on rue Boubon-Villeneuve, he quickly became successful and settled in rue des Petits-Carreaux, where, alongside his main activity, he practiced the timber trade. He worked for merchants as well as for the Count of Artois, the Prince of Condé, the Duke of Chartres, the King of Poland Stanislas II, for wealthy collectors and especially for the Countess of Barry, who placed considerable orders with him.
