Gendarme French leather Club chairs are like Mustache backed pairs, kind of the quintessential Club chair style. The derive their name from the French policemans' hat at the turn of the century, which was in turn inspired by Napoleons famous hat. This pair was restored 20+ years ago by our main upholsterer in France and they bought them back from the couple years later. A testimony to the quality of their work that they buy it back when offered. They sit sumptuously, just perfect really. The pair was restored with cowhide, not sheephide so the skins are a bit softer and supple than your typical sheephide They measure:L-32,W-32, H-33, SeatDepth-18, Seat Width-23
