19th Century Mahogany Pair of Library Armchairs (France, circa 1830)

19th Century Mahogany Pair of Library Armchairs

19th Century Mahogany Pair of Library Armchairs (France, circa 1830)


A very fine quality pair of 19th century mahogany
French Empire library armchairs having well figured
Top rails over enclosed swept arms with carved
Moulded decoration raised on elegant sabre legs

(These chairs are very typical of the general early 19th
century French Empire design, however they are much
better quality than most that you see, much bolder in style
and are filled in (upholstered) under the arms which is unusual
as this area is normally open. They were clearly made
for a very wealthy, high end house which required items for
practical purposes that were of a certain design, but also wanted
to set themselves above the general population. Another
interesting and nice feature is the loose and deep cushions, which
is again quite an unusual feature with by far the majority of chairs
of this design simply having a fixed, stuffover seat which can often
be quite firm, or even hard. These chairs have been recently
re-upholstered and now boast new fabric and are therefore ready
to place straight into the home).
