Pair of Louis XVI-Style Slipper Chairs

19th century, the finely carved, polychromed and parcel-gilt chairs with detailed frames and a pierced foliate crest, raised on turned and fluted legs.
h. 28"

Provenance: Kevin Stone Antiques, New Orleans, Louisiana.

Estimate $ 700-1,000

**Both are in fine condition. There is a little roughness and minor chips to the back side of the crests. Both are sturdy. Beautifully upholstered, and clean. Excellent detail to the carving. As most of the wood surface is either painted or gilded, it is hard to determine what kind of wood they are made from; however, the wood is dense and heavy and probably beechwood.
