Regence Gautier Chair

Regence Parisian chair with the GAUTIER stamp, circa 1725-1730.

Dimensions : 95 h x 52 w x 45 d cm.

The charm and elegance of this chair lie in the fine Rocaille carving, the perfect curves of the front legs and the rare horseshoe-shaped design of the seat. The back legs are formed on a single plane, with scrolled feet, strongly inspired by Louis XIV style, also reproduced on the rare works by Jean Gourdin (Pere Gourdin). A fine Rocaille chair of this type belonged to the Baronness de Caix, at the Chateau du Hameau-Fleuri (Orne) - France.

The Gautier stamp may belong to François Gautier, a pre-1730 master of Rue de Clery, or to Jacques-Alexis, assumed to be his son, who lived at "La Croix d’Or" in the same street. A rare stamp, as there was very little marking before 1743.
