Six Spanish Louis XV chairs



Six Spanish Louis XV chairs

Six highbacked diningchairs. The rear legs run into the slightly curved backs that lean slightly backward. The front legs in cabriole-shape end in claws on spheres. The wide front of the seat is curved and the sides are slightly concave.
Four torqued tiers connect the legs.
The seat and the center of the back are upholstered with pressed Cordoba leather. The leather is decorated with palmettes, conch-shapes and flower and acanthus motives.
The chairs are abundantly carved with rocailles, leaf and flower motives.
The form of these Spanish chairs reveal an unmistakable English influence (the Dutch would call these English chairs). The openwork carving though indicates the Spanish origin.
