Good pair of 18th century Swedish Gustavian Gripsholm armchairs in, circa 1790.

The armchairs got its name from the Gripsholm castle when the king Gustav III decorated most of the bachelor bedrooms with this model of armchair in the late 18th century. Gripsholm is known as Gustav Vasa's castle, as it was he who built the castle on the shores of Lake Mälaren in 1537.

Good condition with wear consistent with age and use. Structurally good and sturdy. A detailed condition report is available on request.
