Based in Church Street, London’s famous Marylebone antiques district for three decades, Marylebone Antiques specialise in English, French & Swedish antique furniture dating from 1790-1970. Until recently they were only dealing in items up to the 1930’s period, but now this has changed. The shop has been completely refurbished & brought into the 21st century. It is now an interesting mix of antique, art deco, 50’s 60’s & 70’s furniture, plus many decorative items. The shop is basically a showroom for our two businesses - www.maryleboneantiques.co.uk & www.restospectiveinteriors.com Please be aware that the majority of either company’s stock will be in one of two large warehouses, at Elstree WD6 3AD & Potters Bar EN6 3NA. Please identify which items you wish to view & if they are in the warehouse, they can be viewed by appointments on most days. A lot of people like to come on Sundays. With a large stock, including desks, bookcases, armchairs, occasional tables, dining furniture, bedroom furniture, and drawing room furniture, as well as lighting and ornamental pieces, Marylebone Antiques range is constantly changing. Therefore, if you don’t see what you want, please feel free to contact us. We ship worldwide and all our items are sold as described and shipped fully insured.

Description

This antique Swedish Bergere three seater sofa is satin birch & has just been completely re-upholstered in a neutral coloured fabric with new feather cushions. Consequently, it’s very comfortable, because the cushions are generously filled. The frame is beautifully carved on the top of the backs behind the cushions. There’s also good carving on the swept over arms, plus below the arms all the way down to the ball & claw feet. There’s more carvings around the bottom of the frame too. This sofa is very fine quality, in good condition & structurally sound. There is one small repair to the cane on one of the back panels, showing in the images. It’s a small piece of patching & was like this when we got it. It’s not that noticeable, being on the lower back & certainly doesn’t affect the overall tightness of that particular cane panel, plus there is another cane panel inside of that. This panel could be re-caned, but it’s really not worth doing, because of the cost & time to do it. All the panels are double cane, which is always a sign of better quality. I would date this sofa to around the 1920-30’s period.

If you feel the upholstery is too light for you & I understand that not everyone wants it that light. We can arrange recovering for about £300-£400 plus fabric. It’s still a very reasonable price for an antique sofa of this quality.
