Antique French Liege Chair Louis XV Style



Louis XV Liege Chair Liege en cabriolet chair

circa 1755.

Dimensions : 88 h x 50 w x 44 d cm.

Original : private collection - Liege area (Belgium).

This very attractive Antique French Liege Chair Louis XV Style has an original, graceful, openwork fiddle-back splat. Deep moulding, curved legs and strong rail are inherited from the French rule-book, but combined with the gentle carving typical of the Liege region make this a model free from excessive prettiness. The comfort of this light chair is due to its curved, or en cabriolet back.
