A fine quality pair of mahogany and brass armchairs with original leather upholstery. The chairs are typical of the Directoire style with a simple elegant design. One chair has a high back and one a low, making them a his and hers pair. The pair are both made in quality, dense Cuban mahogany throughout, and are applied with simple ogee profile brass moulding. The legs are fluted with brass ring collars and simple dart shaped mounts. The Moroccan leather is the original and is in overall very good condition, there are some splits but both chairs are very usable. A fine quality pair of stylish armchairs in great untouched condition. C.1880.

low back: 24 1/2 wide. 20 deep. 29 1/2 high
