Very nice set in walnut, consisting of three ''cabriolet'' armchairs, from the 18th century, attributed to Pierre Nogaret.
They rest on arched legs with a precise outline whose discreet endings in small leaves open downwards.
The widely open armrest consoles in ''coup de fouet'' are linked to the side crosspieces forming an elegant set of curves and counter-curves.
The crosspieces of the backrests and the seat as well as the top of the feet have a decoration of vigorously projecting carved flowers.
From a technical point of view, two common characteristics are attached to the typical Lyon seats:
the elegance of the belt and the presence of a reinforcement bar.
The elegance and balance of these seats, the depth of the moldings, the attachment of the armrest console mastered by the use of a ''whiplash'', the ornamental diversity of the flowers present on the crosspieces and on the the backrests (which refer to the engravings of Jean Pillement)... All these characteristics allow us to affirm the attribution of these three armchairs to the famous Lyonnais carpenter Pierre Nogaret (1745 – 1771)
L. 66 cm x H. 92 cm x D. 64 cm (seat height: 44 cm)
