Suite of four Parisian chairs early Louis XV early 18th century, circa 1740

Suite of four Parisian chairs from the early Louis XV period in moulded, carved and waxed beech wood with a cane bottom. Flat violin backrest says to the queen, seat as wide as it is hospitable, voluble belt resting on a base without spacer with inverted arch. The whole is traversed by a wide and deep molding punctuated with bold acanthus foliage. The great particularity of this pair of chairs lies in the perfect harmony between fine rocaille sculptures such as cartels, cartridges and staples gracefully cohabiting with exploded pomegranates, candles and other flower buds of the new emerging taste, around 1740. We will notice on their backs , the wooden plates which were used to seal the cavities; once the cane is in place. Each is equipped with its tile sheathed in old cognac leather. It is worth noting the great care given to the linking elements of irreproachable quality. Balance, nervousness and elegance are the most appropriate terms for this very beautiful suite of cane-bottomed seats with a very good quality of execution. We can notice a tiny variation of the movements of the foliage on two of them, a detail which demonstrates the importance of the Parisian workshop where they were executed; workshop where the master employed several sculptors on the same order. The suite of chairs that we present to you is to be compared to the production of the Parisian cabinetmaker Louis CRESSON 1706-July 1761, Master in Paris on January 28, 1738. Louis Cresson officiated rue de Cléry under the sign of "l'Image de Saint Louis ". Carpenter to the Prince of Condé and Duke of Orléans, he received an order for the wheelchair for the grandson of Louis XV, the young Duke of Burgundy, who had become disabled. The Carnavalet museum among others as well as the Waddesdon Manor in London hold many of his works. Louis Cresson is undoubtedly the most notable of the ten Master Cabinetmakers supplied by his family to the Corporation. All his creations are of admirable proportions and borrow their lines from the curves of the Louis XV period. Its models, bergères, armchairs, stools or ponteuses offer a wide variety of ornamentation always designed with discretion in the best taste. Dimensions Height 98cm, H of seat 44.5cm without and with tile 49cm. Seat width 49cm.
