Delightful Mid Victorian Button Back Drawing Room Sofa C1870
A wonderful looking mid-19th Century Victorian drawing room sofa coming in at just under 230cm in length that’s 7.5 ft. in old money - perfect for a period home and also able to fit into a more contemporary setting with ease.
It possesses a splendid look and these are never easy to find in this size or condition. It’s a classic look with its deep buttoned, gently sloping back, the very deep fringe hides 6 wonderfully gilt aged legs with ceramic castors and slim lightly shaped arms. The covering is a period inspired rich cream coloured damask fabric with botanical foliage, Greek urns and griffin lion like figures. Just a delightful sofa!
Workshop report – This has undergone a fairly recent full professional reupholster – we are talking firm seats, all buttons intact to the seats and back and very light wear to the fabric . The frame is tight with no movement in the arms or back. The legs sitting underneath the deep fringe are firm with the original gilding in place – be it chipped in places. Expect a very good quality sofa in fine order.
A fine mid-19th Century English drawing room sofa waiting for the right space.
