Louis XVI Perle Chair
Louis XVI shield-backed chair, circa 1785.
Dimensions : 94 h x 51 w x 43 d cm.
Original : Chateau in the Tournai area (Belgium).
The almost slender fineness of this Louis XVI en cabriolet chair model is refined by carving which is very evident on almost all its parts. The originality of the ring of laurels on the legs and the asparagus cabling can be noted, with the bead rail and the fine rosettes on the knees, as well as the centre rosette, which is oval.
