Here is a fine example of a very rare and decorative antique sofa/settee/couch from the German Biedermeier period of circa 1830 – 1850.
In the making of this dramatic Biedermeier, the legs, rail, arms and shoulder board were most likely carved from beautiful walnut wood as wood had became the most important motif of decoration and walnut wood a most frequently used.
The couch incorporates elegant scroll arms either side, with a padded backrest and a comfortable firm sprung seat. Two sets of 6.3 cm/63 mm brass latches allow the back of the sofa to be removed if so desired – adding another dimension. The sofa stands on its original scroll legs. It is very heavy to lift which is always a sign of quality!
This piece has been painstakingly restored, refurbished and reupholstered with a beautiful double woven fabric (70% viscose and 30% polyester), suitably called, “jungle”. This Biedermeier is extremely comfortable, sturdy and solid with its original beautiful wooden frame. The luster of wood was restored with a professional French hand polish.
