Interesting  pair of bergere from the late 19th  in the Napoleon III style , the carving is the real  thing not " applique" ( meaning not a molded piece glued over wood). The  frame is solid mahogany with ebonized carving which was a style developed during  the reign of Louis Philippe and Napoleon the third .The frame has been refreshed  , the upholstery has been redone with vintage French linen , the broidery  initial was the letter of the original owner who never used it ,those linen were  their " best" so as such were left most of the time in a cupboard .There are  bronze cast wheel which is also a 19th feature.This pair  will provide a nice warm touch in any modernist setting  or classical theme.Louis-Philippe,  Duke (duc) d’Orléans,  byname Citizen  King,  French Roi  Citoyen,  (born Oct. 6, 1773, Paris,  France—died Aug. 26, 1850
