OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE: PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF PATRICIA M. SAX
The present pair was probably made in c.1820, when Louis-Alexandre had just become an associate in his father's workshop, of which he would later assume control in 1827. The form and style are typical of the classic Empire period of ten years earlier, though the gilt-bronze mounts add a greater element of richness as they replicate ornamental motifs that would normally be executed as applied carved reliefs in wood. These chairs are part of a larger suite comprising a sofa and six armchairs, the sofa of which is illustrated in Sylvain Cordier, Bellangé, ébénistes. Une histoire du goût au XIXe siècle, Paris 2012, p.504. The CH stamp has thus far not been identified.
