Description:
This listing is for a Pair of Miniature Louis XV Style Carved and White Painted Child Arm Chairs, probably originating in France c. the late 19th Century.  They are a truly delightful pair, with wonderful proportions built for a child to sit in a formal room, but with the same construction and attention to detail expected in a fine Louis chair of regular proportions.  With a delicate carved crest featuring a bouquet of flowers flanked by multiple complicated borders of twisted rope and three beads and short reeding that wraps around the entire medallion back, the chairs are clearly carved by a talented craftsman.  The woven rattan back is tight and in wonderful condition, matching the shabby chic milk white finish on the chairs.  The arms flowing from the medallion back boast matching molding, terminating in scrolled hand holds over an arm rest formed with a subtle cyma-curve.  A projecting frame rests over two cabriole legs that terminate in scrolled french toes.  The rear legs are unadorned and backsweep slightly before terminating in plain french feet.  

This is a simply lovely pair for any collector of French antiques looking for something unique and visually interesting.  Not only serving as a practical pair if one were to allow their children to use these, or as a very comfortable and cute pair for your pet to rest on with you in a formal room, they also serve well as decorative pieces - perhaps a pair in the corner with a few books stacked on the seat.  They add much life to any setting, and with a design that flows easily in both modern, country and formal french settings they are easily assimilated into most home designs.  This is a wonderful find for the collector and designer alike and will surely be treasured in your home for generations to come.

Measurements:
27 7/8" high x 17 1/4" wide x 15" deep; 13 1/4" high from ground to top of seat

Condition:
Visually Outstanding Condition
Finish appears to be original, but we have not closely examined it for possible in painting.  Wonderful patina in finish throughout, with paint chipping, oxidized and fading throughout, much in a desirable way.  One chair is slightly uneven and may need a small pad placed under feet to even out.  One chair has a "whiter" spot on the rattan back.  Upholstery in overall poor condition with staining and significant wear.  Possible mildew or mold on the painted finish.  Please review images below for full overview of condition.

Shipping:
Freight Shipping through one of our blanket wrap drivers is $195.00
Shipping a large piece of furniture to your doorstep can be a complicated task, but we do our best to take care of every single arrangement detail on our end to make this a seamless process for you.  Our customers have overwhelmingly told us that their primary concern in shipping is cost and quality of delivery.  

Based on that, we almost entirely utilize blanket wrap private driver carriers to complete deliveries when possible.  We get outstanding service from these private carriers, but we do ask that you be patient on timing.  Depending on the route, it can sometimes take four or five weeks for a delivery to arrive.  The drivers are often accepting additional items up until the day they leave for the trip to ensure it is a profitable delivery, so timing can fluctuate and they would ask that you are flexible. 


If speed is a priority to you, we have faster shipping options by palletizing your furniture, cardboard crating it and utilizing freight carriers to bring it curbside.  They are incredibly careful, and can usually get it to you with 10 business days of handling and 5 business days on the road.  However, this is a more expensive shipment and is not quoted in our shipping.  If you are interested in this option, we can get a quote together quickly for you.

Local pickup is free and welcomed but please remember that we are required to charge Maryland's 6% sales tax for any pickup. 

All of our quoted shipping costs are for shipping to anywhere within the Continental US. Hawaii, Alaska, and Canada must contact for a quote prior to purchase - all customs and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.  International buyers must contact for a quote prior to purchase.

14-Day Worry Free Guarantee!
We do our very best to take pictures as if you were personally in the room looking at the piece, allowing you to effectively "visit" the piece over the computer, with the same experience you would have in person.  In many cases, our pictures allow you to view the furniture more fully than if you saw it in person.

In the event that you do choose to return, we offer a 14-Day Worry Free Return Policy, allowing you to return your purchase for any reason for up to fourteen days from the day it arrives at your home.  Buyer pays actual shipping costs for delivery to their location as well as all return shipping costs - note that because we quote a flat shipping rate, we regularly absorb portions of the shipping costs to the buyers location, hence the actual shipping costs would be the responsibility of the buyer, and these will be deducted from the refund.  A 15% restocking fee will be charged for all returned furniture items.  

We are responsible for ensuring a safe delivery of your purchase to your home, though during a return the buyer is responsible for making sure the purchase arrives safely at our location - please choose your shipper with care and package carefully.  Item must be returned in the same condition it left us to qualify for a refund.  All refunds minus actual shipping costs and the 15% restocking fee will be processed within two business days of the item arriving.
