February23rd2011Hello,

Period estate records tell us that sofas were fairly uncommon in American rooms in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. We now have this Federal mahogany sofa, circa 1820, available to join your other elegant furnishings. The detail of the curved is reeded above a slender urn turning on rings on a block that is reeded over a turned leg on original brass bucket casters. All is in a fine old finish with the frame covered in a proper type striped rose fabric. H. 34’, length 75”. .

The George III Chippendale armchair circa 1750-90 is a favorite and comfortable form. The balloon back is flanked by graceful molded serpentine arms on shaped seat. Below, the legs are molded and have recessed stretchers. Now covered in handsome printed linen. Fine old patina. H. 38’, extreme width 27”.

Also shown, a Persian runner, old 20th century, 2’ 9” X 16’ 9”. Italian Baroque style floor stand, circa 1910. Freshly rewired and reshaded.

May I answer further questions or provide more detailed images? We are eager to hear your specific requests.

Best regards and thanks

-Bob
