Pair of Extremely Rare Austrian Mahogany Bergere Chairs with Brass Inlay

Pair of Extremely Rare Austrian Bergere Chairs
Solid mahogany pair of bergere chairs with a fine delicate brass inlay, circa 1820-1840. Our old plank workshop carefully disassembled the complete frames and gusseted all the corners before restoration began. Next the mahogany birdcages were refinished, the brass inlays polished and then began the laborious task of reupholstering, the old fashion way. We used a mix of horse and hog hair, eight-way hand-tied springs, new webbing and a double welt. The chairs have a sculptural quality about them and we have a matching settee finished in a complimentary fabric also available on 1stdibs.
