A pair of walnut fauteuils, with probably the original blue varnish wash, retaining their original gros point needlework covers, each having a stuffed, shaped padded back, with sweeping carved arms, and carved scrolling elbows and supports. The front cabriole legs, with scroll toes and joined by a gentle serpentine front rail; both with carved acanthus and rocaille motifs; the back legs outstretched with scrolling toes.

The needlework worked on an ivory background with large, vibrant flowers, including roses and carnations, with attractive foliage.
