A fabulous set of six antique rare French Os de Mouton dining chairs which as you may have noticed could do with re-upholstering. Unfortunately they were covered with red blankets at some stage and the colour has run. We were planning to renew the upholstery but decided it is better to let the buyer choose their own fabric. These chairs are well worth this. Many antique chairs are purely decorative because they become too frail or delicate after a hundred years or more of use. But not Os de Mouton, or Sheep Bone chairs. As the French name suggests, the shape of the chair legs is literally based on the legs of a lamb. A solid frame and shapely legs give these chairs a classic, timeless appearance while the upholstered backs and seats with nailhead trim, add elegance. Os de Mouton chairs are very functional as well as impressively decorative. These antique French chairs look wonderful with most any style dining table. Os de Mouton chairs filled many exquisite dining halls of grand chateaus across the French countryside.
