The term ‘transitional’ defines the period between the rococo and neo-classical during the later years of Louis XV’s reign. These fauteuils have rococo backs and arms but rather than a curved cabriole leg, the Transitional leg is used with neo-classical fluting. As the style progressed under the reign of Louis XVI, chairs became increasingly restrained.

Attributed to Michelangelo Maestri (Italian, d. 1812)
