Important Early and Rare Gilded Paul Follot Art Nouveau Club Chairs, 1911

$56,000per set

About

This pair of club chairs is designed by the well-known French Art Deco designer Paul Follot. Follot was not just a designer but a real artist and trained as sculptor. From 1904 Follot headed his own decorating company, catering to a wealthy clientele, and gained a reputation for quality and elegance. Paul Follot made luxury furniture and designed textiles for Cornille et Cie, carpets for the Savonnerie manufactory and silver for Christofle throughout his career. In 1911 he made china designs for the Wedgwood company of England. Between 1910 and 1914 he designed new forms of jewelry. These chairs are specially custom ordered in person at the Paul Follot Atelier as a wedding present in 1911 and since then part of the art and furniture collection of a French/ Dutch family. Not just the form of these chairs but also the floral mohair fabric was designed by Paul Follot. These chairs are in their original condition, never restored and we like to keep them in that condition.
