Louis XV Liege Chair
Liege en cabriolet chair, circa 1755.
Dimensions : 88 h x 50 w x 44 d cm.
Original : private collection - Liege area (Belgium).
This very attractive model has an original, graceful, openwork fiddle-back splat. Deep moulding, curved legs and strong rail are inherited from the French rule-book, but combined with the gentle carving typical of the Liege region make this a model free from excessive prettiness. The comfort of this light chair is due to its curved, or en cabriolet back.
