Louis XVI Lyre ChairLouis XVI chair en cabriolet with lyre motif, circa 1785.
Dimensions 90 h x 42 w x 42 d cm.
Original : Belgian provincial chateau.
The narrow seat dimensions make this charming, comfortable chair with the lyre motif on the back remind one of musicians chairs. This can be a bonus for certain furniture arrangements. The wide, deep moulding, the square tapered legs and a certain charming naivety in the carving are reminiscent of a model from the South of France, although we can find chairs in this vein in both Paris and the provinces.
