Set of Six Louis XVI European Arm Chairs

Continental Europe End of the 18th Century

A fine set of arm chairs with deeply carved flower heads, leafage, beading and stop fluting. They are an attractive dark amber honey color. Two chairs have gold and white fabric and the other four are light blue and white. They were upholstered by a skilled artisan who understood the period fashion while incorporating springs in the seats.

Fine Japanese Tall Cup and Saucers

Admittedly I know little about Japanese porcelain but I can spot quality when I see it. There is one cup or beaker and two saucers of eggshell thin porcelain. The painting over the glaze is sharply delineated with rich colors and gold. I believe it dates from the 2nd half of the 19th century.
