Object Description

A set of six Aubusson tapestry and giltwood chairs
French, 18th and 19th Centuries
Height 87cm, width 61cm, depth 50cm

Formed of a set of six, these fine works are nineteenth century giltwood chairs, formed by combining this later frame with eighteenth century Aubusson tapestries, an established practice about this time. A town in the upper valley of the Creuse in central France, Aubusson and its tapestry manufactory went on at its height to compete with France’s Royal manufactories in the eighteenth century. A large number of its works feature idyllic, leisurely, and charming Rococo countryside images and themes, such as displayed here.

The tapestry industry was maintained in the nineteenth century by combining and mounting many earlier works into the upholstery and furnishings for furniture pieces as demonstrated here. These excellent works, combining these fine tapestries with luxurious giltwood mounts, are fine antique objects and chairs, functional, and great historical records of this fine French tradition.
