Here is a stunning quality pair of antique French walnut fauteuil tapestry carved armchairs (circa 1840) from the 2nd Empire period. The chairs are constructed of solid walnut and feature very pretty carved floral frames with high shaped backs, serpentine fronts and carved cabriole legs, which are connected with carved shaped stretchers. The armchairs feature down swept arms, which terminate in scroll ends carved with acanthus leaves. The chairs have been newly upholstered in a high quality silk embossed brocade tapestry. The upholstery is finished with brass studs to the frame. The backs and undersides of the chair feature similar upholstery. The seat is firmly sprung so that you do not sink into the seats but at the same time is extremely comfortable.
The chairs feature a dark rich brown walnut colour. As they boast the original polish, they have a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning they have received.
The armchairs would look superb in a variety of rooms including the living room, dining room or hallway. The chairs would certainly grace any home and are a great investment as they are extremely functional. So don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
