Louis XV Peonies Cabriolet Armchair - Louis Delanois

Louis XV Cabriolet Armchair

Circa 1760.

Dimensions : 90 H x 65 W x 51 D cm.

Original : Antiquarian – Paris.

The charm and originality of this small armchair « cabriolet » shows itself in many ways. The projection of the crossing in the back, the moulding that curves and counter curves to finish in supremely elegant flowers, and the robust carving and dynamic architectural « feel ».

The beautiful « coup de fouet » of the armrest support is certainly contributing to this fluid elegance. Although not stamped, it can be linked to the works of Louis Delanois or Pothier.
