Pair of French 19th Century Louis XVI Wingback Bergères
A fine pair of French Louis XVI bergères from the 19th century. The chairs are upholstered in a vivid flame persimmon colored cut velvet, with a geometric pattern, and affixed to the frame with nail heads. A remarkable aged patina has consumed the painted frame, with spots peeking from behind its beautiful gray green paint. The frame has wonderful carved details, with motifs of lamb's tongue and beaded pearls. The chairs are very comfortable, great for captivating conversations or reading a good book. c.1860.
