This highly important pair of Italian giltwood armchairs dates to the 18th century. Each features a meticulously hand-carved frame, complete with neoclassical motifs that are reminiscent of the Louis XVI style in France. They particularly reveal the influence of the great 18th-century French furniture maker Jean-Baptiste-Claude Sené, who frequently created pieces for the chateaux of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette in the neoclassical taste. With its finely carved fluted legs, neoclassical motifs, clear-cut silhouettes and symmetry of decoration, this superb pair of chairs exhibits a similar regal appearance. 

Hailing from the Piedmont region of Italy, the seats are unique in both their lack of upholstery on the armrest and their ringed, square feat. With their graceful lines and bold proportions, chairs of this caliber are rarities on the market. To find an original pair in such incredible condition and workmanship is exceptional.
