Whilst Louis XVI reign flourished between 1774 and 1792, the maker of these Louis XVI-style hall chairs, A. Bastea, flourished a century or so later.

MEUBLES D'ART Anciens et Modernes. 3, Rue du President - Carnot. IMAGES 8 & 9. As a point of reference, a second version of A. Bastea's stamped metal manufacturer's mark can be found attached to a far grander piece of period furniture acquired and presumed recently sold by top London dealer, Adrian Alan in South Audley Street W1, a Louis XIV Style carved gilwood centre table.
