Absolutely Stunning! Luxurious Late Victorian / Early Edwardian Country House Two-Seater Sofa.
In the most beautiful vibrant purple velvet upholstery (been described as a Cadbury colour), With A Drop Arm (this drops flat on full recline, and can also be locked in to desired position).
A Great Addition To boho Eclectic Interiors, Very Functional and Simply Beautiful
It’s a two-seater but a very comfortable two-seater, with a good deep seating position, dove feather filled seat cushions, sprung base, heavily padded back & armrests. This piece would have been originally used as library or games room sofa, in a grand country home, but now perfect for modern living as a luxurious two-seater for the lounge or living space.
Remains in excellent condition for its age which is circa 1900. The velvet is also very old, quite possibly original but we believe it was professionally reupholstered in the early part of the 20th century - circa 1920's. It has been given a gentle clean so it’s looking great and retains a good pile throughout, with all the right colour tone changes when stroked, no nasty stains and just some general very light marks commensurate to its age/use.
Solid timber frame which is very strong and with a good weight. Upholstered and padded the traditional way with wool, horsehair, springs and dove feathers.
Standing on front tapered legs and with a subtle splay to the rear legs, these are finished with later addition 'Shepard' castors which make it easy to manoeuvre, but simply unscrew if not required/wanted, we thought it best to leave for the new owner to decide once in position. The drop arm is fully functional, strong and all the locking position work perfectly.
Please note that although in excellent condition for its age, it is an antique piece of furniture so please expect some signs of historical wear. Light piping wear around the edges of the arms, there are no rips or tears, the seats are not sagging remaining firm under the cushions, and it can be used/perfect as an everyday sofa.
Dimensions: width 176cm x height 75cm (without castors 70cm) x depth 91cm x height to seat 50cm (without castors 45cm)
