Pair of French 19th Century Walnut Transitional Wingback Bergères
A pair of brilliantly carved French walnut bergères that combine elements of Louis XV and XVI styles. The back features a twisted ribbon motif that can also be found on the chairs' rails. The arms have a more fluid, scrolled design, influenced by Louis XV. The pair is upholstered in a floral cut velvet fabric that is secured to the frame with brass nail heads. The turned, tapered, and fluted legs lift the seat to a height of 18".
