Here is a rare and stunning quality stunning example of an antique pair of French Louis XV style carved walnut armchairs, which have been newly upholstered, circa 1860, from the 2nd Empire period, in excellent condition. The armchairs are constructed of solid walnut and feature stunning quality carved floral cartouches, acanthus leaves and floral frames, which terminate on cabriole legs all round and incorporate the original small brass and ceramic castors to the front legs. The armchairs have been newly upholstered in top quality luxurious silk & cotton brocade upholstery, in a pale gold colour. The armchairs feature scroll arms; shield backs, shaped sides and a serpentine front. The back rails feature stunning floral carvings to the centre of the pediment and the frames are carved with acanthus leaves. The base of the chairs is firmly sprung so that you do not sink into the seats but at the same time they are extremely comfortable sit on. The undersides are upholstered with the original webbing.

This pair of armchairs boasts a rich mid brown walnut colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination this can only be achieved through age and the years of care and cleaning it has received.
