Antiques By Design - Louis XV Style French Bergere Chair

Louis XV Style French Bergere Chair

Beautiful Victorian French style Walnut Bergere armchairs. These comfortable upholstered wing arm chairs with exposed wood frame have closed arms and concave back with a cabriole leg are in the form of Louis XV. The chairs are very nice quality heavy and crisply carved and we believe they are American in origin. The frames are crisply carved throughout with C scroll acanthus foliage flowers & shell cresting. The arms are acanthus carved scroll roll front. The seat front is serpentine and the apron with shell carved crest and the cabriole leg with shell scroll & acanthus carved knee. The original sprung seats are in very good condition and the vintage cut velvet fabric is acceptable. The frames are in excellent condition and may have been re finished some time ago. We have the matching tea table and set of four dining chairs available
