Pair of Louis XVI Painted Wood Jardinière Stands

Ships From: Boston, MA US

Description: The circular container carved with pearls and rinceaux and supported by an inswept strung-piaster quadripartite stand with a central finial and hung with swags raised on a conforming plinth. This stunning pair is very much evocative of the designs of Delafosse (French, 1734-1789), an architect as well as an engraver and decorative designer, and one of the most influential figures in the development of the early neo-grec Louis XVI style. Delafosse used the vocabulary of neoclassical design consisting, as is the case here, in heavy garlands, swags, scrolls, rosettes and other designs all displayed geometrically.

Condition Report: Good, repainted (probably previously gilded) with customary worm holes and age cracks.

Rare Pair of Consulat Fruitwood Curule Side Chairs

Ships From: Boston, MA US

Description: Of curule shape. The design of these chairs after an Antique 'folding stool' was derived from the Roman consular curule. The rediscovery of Pompeii and Herculaneum in the earlier part of the 18th century led cabinetmakers to create archaeologically-inspired forms such as this form of chair. This curule form in particular was reinvented by the architects Charles Percier (d.1838), and Pierre-François-Léonard Fontaine (d.1853) in their Recueil de décorations intérieures, 1801 where similar designs were published (see D. Ledoux-Lebard, Le Mobilier Français du XIX Siècle, Paris, 1989, p. 283). A related mahogany version, attributed to the celebrated ébéniste François-Honoré-Georges Jacob Desmalter (d.1814), for whom Percier executed the design, is also illustrated by D. Ledoux-Lebard (ibid. p.283).

Condition Report: Very good with old repaired breaks.
