Antique French Louis XV Gilt Cane Bergere Chair


An exceptional example of the highly sought after Louis XV Gilt Cane Bergere Chair. Is it possible to fall in love with a chair?!! Well we have!  This is an absolutely beautiful early version in incredible order for its age. Deep patina from years of use, gilt and original worn paints of reds and gilt to arms where centuries of hands have rubbed away to reveal the original period base coat. Carved decorative motif so of the time to back rest surround again worn with years of use. Very rare to find originals and this chair has been well loved over its history. Some historic repairs to underside of the frame with addition of screws. The cane work is deeply burnished with years of use and in exceptional order for age. We really want to keep this statement piece as the best example we have had in ever and ever likely to.

Originally the chair would have had a cushion base over the seat area, we can supply at extra cost a tailor made feather down cushion in a choice of fabric if required through out in house upholstery service.
