Light Louis XVI bergere, circa 1789.
Original : private collection.
This pretty Parisian model of bergere is a small seat, built for charm, elegance and comfort. To this must be added carving of large beads, acanthus, and a highly original carving arrangement at the tops of the stiles and the centre of the back rail. This bergere is rather reminiscent of certain works by the innovative master Sulpice Brizard. The adhering offset rosettes are an example of late Louis XVI style.
