Bergère early Louis XV with flat backrest in molded, carved and waxed walnut wood. Quadrangular in structure, its imposing flat backrest is just as high as it is wide; slightly inclined, it is nicely violin of exposed wood where runs a most harmonious vegetal ribbon, topped by an asymmetrical rocky cartel centered with a daisy. The armrests are straight; their supports are visible and detached. A flat upright nested parallel to the armrest console frames and unites the padded cheeks and cuffs. The whole is wrapped jointly in the lower part of the backrest and in the lateral cross member of the belt set back from the front base, thus forming the famous gallant withdrawal *. A fine decoration of the most graceful twining foliage unifies the console and the crosspieces. The wide belt is scalloped on all sides, strongly curved from the front and all in curves and against curves for its sides. The whole is embellished with fine sculptures in cartridges and foliated cartels enriched with tangled acanthus. The whole resting on a short and arched base punctuated by winding up of natural foliage. Beautiful harmony of fine and generous sculptures well marked with a delightful decor perfectly mastered. This shepherdess testifies to the structural, formal and decorative quintessence attained by the carpenters in seats at the end of the first third of the 18th century. All; width and height of the backrest, slatted cheeks and seat depth, all padded that could be embellished with movable pillows placed on the seat; gives this rare shepherdess a beautiful balance halfway between charm and comfort. It should be noted the great care taken to the connecting elements of an irreproachable quality. Balance, comfort, elegance and quality are the terms most appropriate to this very beautiful epicurean chair.
