Pair of chairs
Charming pair of chairs of style and period Napoleon III. The wood work is characteristic of the time in its form as well as in its blackened decorations. To remain faithful to the spirit of this style they have been reupholstered in a deep red velvet.
Style: Napoleon III
Nephew of Napoleon I, Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte was elected President of the Second Republic in 1848 before becoming Emperor Napoleon III in 1852 following a coup d'etat.
Napoleon III style is one of the most interesting even if nothing is really novel with elements borrowed from preceding styles. Based on the taste of the period, Japanese, Chinese and Oriental art brings a richness, abundance and eclecticism specific to this period.
