A stunning pair of antique Maison Jansen Style Louis XVI painted fauteuil chairs with down cushions and old upholstery tacks. Very rare to find a matching pair of this age. The layered painted surface in shades of cream, olive green and black on the wood frames adds such character to this 100+ year old set. Clearly in need of re-upholstery but the down cushions could be recovered. The wood frames themselves are strong and comfortable to sit in. Stamped FRANCE on the underside of the chair frame.
33.75H x 21.75W x 22D
From the collection of a Boulder, Colorado interior designer who collected many antique pieces from France. Collector purchased this pair of fauteuil chairs at the annual Chicago Antiques & Art Show in the 1990s.
Condition commensurate with age and use. The painted surface shows 100+ years of wear with stable surface crazing but no flaking. Re-upholstery is needed. Surface crack on the back of each chair, see last two photos. Chair frames are strong and comfortable to sit in. A very slight wiggle in the frames but joints are not loose.
