Description
This is an extremely rare if not unique and quite amazing Venetian Giltwood sofa dating from the late 19th century. The sofa has the most wonderful pair of hand carved and water gilded satyrs to the ends. The Satyrs are in super order with a lovely antique patina to the original water gilding. The frame is in good sound condition with no movement to the joints. In Greek mythology Satyrs are one of a class of lustful, drunken woodland gods. In Greek art Satyrs were characterised by their ribaldry and were known as lovers of wine, music, dancing and women. They were companions of the god Dionysus and were believed to inhabit remote locales, such as woodlands, mountains, and pastures. The sofa is currently upholstered in a quality rich velvet brocade in fern green, burgundy and blue which is in excellent condition however this would be an easy one to recover in a fabric of your choice should you wish. A most individual and eye catching conversation piece with nice proportions that would sit well in many locations.
