THREE FABULOUS FRENCH DOLLS WIREWORK CHAIRS - CHOICE OF
I have here for
my collectors, an absolutely super set of French
Wirework Chairs. Whilst it would be nice if they could stay together,
I have decided to offer them separately, or as a pair and a single - so
choices for your display. They are really beautiful, and I have not
seen any quite like these before. Perfect for small antique dolls or
bears. They are not very wide so will not take up much room in a
display, but will look stunning. Each measures about 6 and a half

I would date them from around 1900.
There must have been hours of work in creating these little
masterpieces. As would be expected, the gilding has darkened in
places. Other than a couple of small metal threads missing from
the forearms of chair number 1, I think they are otherwise pretty much
intact - perhaps not too surprising as they are so well made.
There are 3 gorgeous little cushions obviously originally made for the
chairs which will be coming with them. Chair 1 and 2 have little
fine fabric floral cushions with silky bows to each corner and dark red
rosettes on the cushions. Rosette decoration was very popular in
Victorian times. Chair 3 has another lovely little miniature
cushion - this time dark pink with a starburst to the rear of the
cushion. It is piped in green around the edges, finishing with
tassels to each corner. The middle has been worked with a stitched
woolwork decoration - I think this is depicting a little bee fluttering
onto a tiny flower. The buyer (s) will love these I am
certain, and they will add greatly to doll/bear/toy displays. Do
bear in mind the little cushions on their own are wonderful and hand
made period pieces - and are worth nearly the prices on their own!
