Antique Furniture Louis XV Bergere


Antique French Furniture Louis XV Bergere

Circa 1755 - 1760.

Dimensions : H 90 x L 59 x P 52 cm.

Original : Private Collection, Normandy.

Both genuine and gracious in its simplicity, this small occasional Antique Louis XV bergere is a good example of the French charm and grace under Louis XV Furniture Style.

It is very comfortable if more « solid » and offers an interesting alternative to the usual armchairs « en cabriolet ». Depicting an abbreviated stamp « NR », she presents an asymmetry on the front cross bars and leaves at the end of the cloven shoe. One can also see unusual carving and moulding of the feet.
