This set of four important armchairs directly comes from the S. Castle, located in the Val de Loire region. Another set of twelve armchairs by Jacques Adnet, upholstered with a Pierre Olivier tapestry and illustrating the twelve months of the year, was also in this collection; as well as an important chandelier by Gilbert Poillerat. These pieces had been acquired in the 40’s and had remained in the same collection until then.
