Pair of "Aubépine" Armchairs


circa 1900

mahogany, fabric upholstery

33 1/8 x 26 3/4 x 26 3/4 in. (84.1 x 67.9 x 67.9 cm) each

Overall in very good condition. The mahogany surfaces present with light scratches, minor abrasions and minute indentations throughout, particularly concentrated to the edges of the legs and armrests as consistent with gentle use. Both armchairs are enriched with carved details in very well-preserved condition with surface soiling concentrated to the recessed contours. The chairs have been sensitively reupholstered in a brown velvet upholstery which is in excellent condition with some extremely minor areas of wear, discoloration and surface soiling. A matching and highly functional pair of armchairs by the master of European Art Nouveau furniture.
