About

Set of six Biedermeier lyre chairs, Northern Germany, 1820s. Made of mahogany. Very good, original condition. Conical square legs on the front, square legs on the back. Straight chair frame. Upholstery and upholstery are original. The upholstery fabric is embroidered with an elaborate flower pattern and is held by Fine decorative nails. Elegantly curved, openwork backrest. A fully plastic lyre is depicted between the central bar and the shoulder rest, which is very finely decorated with volutes and leaf ornaments. The individual strings of the lyre are gilded. The shoulder rest is deepened, the profile also gilded. Rare collector's items of the best museum quality. (Research and text: Art historian Jens J. Reinke, M.A.) The Biedermeier chairs will be reworked while retaining their patina and polished by hand with shellac. The costs of the wood revision are included in the purchase price. The chairs can also be newly upholstered, upon request. We will be happy to prepare an individual offer for you. Scholarly literature: Rainer Haaff: Biedermeierwelten. Menschen, Möbel, Metropolen.
