This beautiful Louis XVI cameo French chair is a delight to behold. It has very delicate ribbon carving around the entire frame and carved beading surrounding the central cameo. The frame is hand made from mahogany timber which has been gilded in gold leaf. It is a classic example of an antique French bergere chair that is often also referred to as a fauteuil in French.
This chair can be done in any type of finish and looks just as wonderful in a painted finish or stained timber finish. As with the finishing, the upholstery can be done in many different ways. Double buttoned as illustrated, single buttoned to the inside only, plain upholstery or even with a seperate seat cushion rather than the coil sprung seat show.
