Beginning in the 17th century, luxurious dining rooms in châteaux across France were commonly fitted with os de mouton (sheep bone) dining chairs. Even today, the style of the French os de mouton dining chairs tend to blend with numerous dining tables, from the traditional French trestle to more modern interpretations. The name, os de mouton translates simply to sheep bone, which is the form of the chair’s stretchers. Apparently, someone previous to our ownership, sent this pair of antique French os de mouton dining arm chairs out for a full restoration and new upholstery. When you see French chairs assembled with wood pegs, like this pair, they tend to be older than ones without the pegs. We have large quantities of French os de mouton side chairs available on 1stdibs that could be stained to match.
**Please note that there are some small stains on the fabric of both chairs.
