A pair of French Louis XVI style painted wood wingback bergère chairs from the late 19th century, with carved décor and new upholstery. Born in France during the later years of the 19th century, each of this pair of bergères features a winged back, designed to provide privacy and comfort to the sitter, adorned with delicate roses on its upper rail and accented with a twisted ribbon on its outer molding. The partially upholstered arms are scrolled on the knuckles and present acanthus leaf motifs. Comprising a custom-made cushion, each bergère is upholstered with a double welt cotton fabric, while the entire structure is painted in a soft color. The chair is raised on four fluted legs, highlighted with carved rosettes on the front knees and a low-relief carved motif on the skirt. With their graceful neoclassical lines and exquisite décor, these French Louis XVI style bergère armchairs circa 1890, will bring a touch of elegance to any home, particularly in a living room or bedroom. Each seat is 20" H x 19 .5" D, while the arms are 23" H.
