Description

Consisting of French Aubusson tapestries which date to the eighteenth century, these remarkale chairs form a set of six works, which were constructed by mounting these earlier tapestries in an elegant nineteenth century giltwood structure. 

Aubusson tapestries were made in the town of Aubusson in the upper valley of the Creuse in central France, competing with the likes of royal manufactories in the eighteenth century. Many of the works feature charming, relaxed, and idyllic Rococo themes such as these.

The industry was maintained in the next century, in which many works such as these were mounted and formed part of furniture pieces. These wonderful works are no exception, and are an excellent chance to old a functional antique set of objects, full of history and grace from this great French tradition.
