Description

Those tiny and elegant chairs with trapezoidal seats stand on four baluster feet. They are linked with a curved X-shaped crossbar centered by a spinning-top.

Baluster-shaped feet and the presence of a top on the crossbar are characteristic of Louis XIII period.

During Louis XIII reign, chairs’ rigour and simplicity evolve towards more dynamism with turned wood feet. 

The narrow back-seats of theses chairs stands with straight uprights.
