Pair of 18th Century Swedish Gustavian Period Chairs in Original Paint

THE STORY: 

A pair of Swedish armchairs from the Gustavian period with lamb's tongue carving on the frame; pierced splats; and round, fluted, and tapered legs with cross stretcher. The soft gray, dry-scrapped paint is original. These chairs are ready to be reupholstered, circa 1790.

The arm height is 25.88" H at the end of the arm and 26.25" H at the center of the upholstered portion of the arm.  

The Gustavian style, named after King Gustav III of Sweden, is a restrained interpretation of the French Louis XV and Louis XVI style. King Gustav III was enamored with the neoclassical style and therefore created his own interpretation for Sweden.
