Circa 1910-30; carved beech with worn beige painted surface
Item # 904VVI13L 

A gorgeous loveseat sofa from the second quarter of the 20th century, this iconic form is beautifully completed in the traditional Louis XVI form.  Flanking the straight crest rail are a pair of small finials with draped laurel leaves over the crisp molded frame with a repeating bead motif that follows most outer edges of the settee.  

The standard curved hand-hold is raised over a carved acanthus arm support while both front corners are carved with inset stylized florals over tapered and fluted legs.  

It is built to last the test of time with solid white-beech throughout under the thick beige-lacquer painted surface, this having delightfully worn and discolored over the years.

An attractive and rather well maintained silk damask covers the sofa and three small accent pillows, the loose seat cushion stuffed with down and very comfortable.  While we almost always recommend the coverings be updated to flow more cohesively with your interior, the upholstery presently remains in serviceable condition and can be enjoyed until you choose to move forward with reupholstery.

Measurements: 35 1/8" H x 47 3/4" W x 25" D x 18" H to seat

Condition Report:
Upholstery remaining serviceable in overall "fair-to-good" condition with minor blemishes, spots, color sun-fading and variation; very comfortable and supportive; sturdy joints; worn painted surface throughout.
