The beautiful design of this pair of French upholstered armchairs exemplifies the artistry and elegance of the Charles X period. Exhibiting perfect proportions, the chairs are enhanced by stunning bronze ormolu wreath medallions applied to the seat backs and aprons. The Charles X era is famous for the sophistication and quality of its objects, as the neoclassicism which came to the fore during the Empire period evolved during this time, becoming lighter and less severe.
