Circa 1870, pair of exhibition quality carved walnut fauteuil/armchairs in the Louis XVI style. The vase backs have a wonderful relief carved top in the form of flowers and high Rococo. The chairs are newly upholstered in a wonderful double piped silk like fabric. The arms are padded and finish with a wonderful curling scroll in the form of leaves. It is supported on a large cabriole upright. The large stuffover seat with a shaped apron. The front of the apron is carved with a scallop shell in the centre. The sides are shaped and double beaded, as is the back. The whole piece stands on four well carved elegant cabriole legs. Both chairs are in excellent near perfect condition, and are ready for use. Good example of a chair of this style.
