Availability: In stock

This late Neoclassic / Early Romantic pair of chenets wonderfully displays the artistic sensibility that imbues even the most mundane interior objets produced by French artisans in the first part of the nineteenth century. The expressionistic poses of the horses immediately brings to mind the paintings of Gericault, which were doubtless the inspiration for the maker of these chenets. I've categorized them as "accessories," but they really belong in the "fine art" category.France, circa 1830. L: 38"/97 cm, H: 8"/20cm.
