Here is an example of a superb antique French Louis XV style carved oak rush seated ladder-back dining chair of the 3rd Republic period, circa 1910, in excellent condition. Featuring a shaped top rail with two further wavy shaped rails below, in the form of a ladder back design within the shaped upright supports; the chair features a “drop-in” rush seat, which is in good condition. The seat is raised on fine cabriole legs to the front (which terminate on curled toecaps), with sabre legs to the rear. The chair is heavy in weight, which is a good sign of fine quality and it means it is sturdy.

The chair features a warm, golden brown colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a lovely colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and the years of care and cleaning it has received.

This chair would look superb in a variety of rooms, especially the kitchen or dining room. It would certainly grace any home in either a contemporary or traditional setting; it is a great investment, as it is an extremely functional item. So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
