Set of eight Hollywood Regency style French dining chairs. These eight chairs are truly unique accentuating the albino zebra print on the seat and the red upholstery on the top of the back rests and arm rests adds an exciting contract to these Louis XVI style set of eight attributed to Maison Jansen. The finely carved frames in an off white Swedish paint decorated finish. This piece is accompanied by a letter of Authentication from James Archer Abbott, Author of 'Designing Camelot: the Kennedy White House Restoration' as well as both Jansen Furniture Books. James Archer Abbott serves as Director and Curator of Johns Hopkins University’s Evergreen Museum & Library – one of two museums owned and operated by the university. Mr. Abbott's publications include the following exhibition catalogs: Visions of Washington Irving: Selections from the Collections of Historic Hudson Valley (co-author, 1991); Classical to 19th-Century America: The Influence of Berry Tracy on the Historical Interior (1994); and A Frenchman in Camelot: The Decoration of the Kennedy White House by Stéphane Boudin (1995). Mr. Abbott co-wrote with Elaine Rice a further exploration of the Kennedy White House décor, entitled Designing Camelot: The Kennedy White House Restoration, which was published by Van Nostrand Reinhold in 1998. In 2006, he completed a well-received history of the international design firm Jansen (1880-1989), entitled "JANSEN," and published by Acanthus Press, LLC. This was followed by a companion volume, "JANSEN Furniture," published in spring 2007.
