Dutch Ebonized Low Chair Chauffeuse

Dutch Low Chair “Chauffeuse”

I kind of like this ebonized Dutch Low Chair or Chauffeuse

Sale 2838, The Decorative Arts Sale incl. Fine Paintings,30 June – 1 July 2010
Amsterdam

The moulded frame on S-shaped legs joined by a turned baluster front stretcher, the padded back and seat covered in black material with floral and chinoiserie decoration, on castors

A comparable “chauffeuse” is in the collection of Paleis Het Loo and illustrated in Paul Rem, Hofmeubilair, Negentiende-eeuwse meubelen uit de collectie van Paleis Het Loo, Zwolle, p. 113, cat. nr. 61.

Via Christie’s.

  1. Love it too, the step for legs also looks pretty cool to me. I like its darkness too 🙂
