19th Century French Carved Walnut & Gilt Salon Settee
REF: 1001275 / LA360162
Thinking about the history of this 19th century salon settee it is quite amazing really. When you consider the settee was made between 150-220 years ago, it astounding how well it has been looked after, cherished, sat on and probably admired by many. Now its someone else's turn to soak up this history and be the caretaker. When you consider you can buy a sofa from one of the main brand companies on the high street for twice the price, it will be made with lesser quality materials, making this is incredible value complete with a unique and long history. The charm and detail of the delicate guilloche and foliated carving on the walnut frame is exquisite, to say the least. The formation of the curved walnut frame, leading down to the shaped scroll arms and flowers carved in to the fluted legs with the original brass castors, make this a truly individual piece. All original apart from new upholstery, this alone has been chosen with care and consideration for this beautiful piece and compliments the gilding on the sofa frame perfectly. The subtle colour of heather, pink, grey & taupe within the tartan woollen fabric makes this sofa one of the nicest I have seen to date. As for comfort, you automatically think it will be firm and lumpy, how wrong was I when I first sat on it. Sumptuous filling to the seat, back, integrated side bolsters has given this settee a useful purpose, not just a piece to admire. No, super comfortable without being too hard or overly soft. Perfect in every way to use on a daily basis, if you allow anyone near it! The castors are stamped, but it is hard to determine the exact wording. They are original and untouched. The brass shows all the signs of wear across the centuries.
