Original pair of antique French salon armchairs in lovely original condition dating from the 19th century, roughly around the 1880-90's period. The frames are mahogany with applied gilt work. They have aged beautifully, so the gilding has gradually worn off, but there is still evidence of it in many places. It's more evident on the backs, legs & in the grooves where it hasn't been cleaned so much over the years. They have oval backs, open arms, turned fluted legs & have very crisp carvings all over. These chairs are very sturdy & they have just been re-upholstered in a cream linen fabric.
