Louis XV Bergere
Circa 1755 - 1760.
Original : Private Collection, Normandy.
Both genuine and gracious in its simplicity, this small occasional bergere is a good example of the French charm and grace under Louis XV.
It is very comfortable if more « solid » and offers an interesting alternative to the usual armchairs « en cabriole ». Depicting an abbreviated stamp « NR », she presents an asymmetry on the front cross bars and leaves at the end of the cloven shoe. One can also see unusual carving and moulding of the feet.
