Pair of Flemish Style Carved Walnut Needlework Fauteuils
A beautiful pair of Flemish style carved walnut needlework fauteuils. These chairs date back to the third quarter of the 19th century. Each has a tall padded back, joined by the scrolled carved arms to the padded seat. The fauteuils stand on cabriole legs joined by a pierced scrolling front stretcher. Both the chairs showcase a loral needlework upholstery. The elegant needlework design spans from the seat to the backrest. A moss green velvet and brass nailhead trim back the chairs throughout.
Flemish furniture was popular in the 17th Century. The distinguishing feature was elaborate carving. The so-called Flemish scroll, an “S” or “C” curved ornamental form was prominent. Flemish furniture originated in Flanders (Belgium) and northern France during the 15th Century.
Overall, a notable pair of needlework fauteuils that would make a great addition to any home.
