Antique Sofas

Large And Generous Shape 19th Century Antique Country House Drawing Room Sofa

This is a very fine example of a 19th fine country house drawing room antique sofa or settee. It is a generous shape with scroll arms and gently raised back. This sofa has coiled springs which dates it to post 1828, but the legs are a good fine Regency reeded design from an earlier period. This, combined with the good ground clearance and elegant lines, put this sofa in a category far above what would be considered normal for the period and it must have been made by one of the top makers of its time. Please ask for details of reupholstery and delivery options.

Antique sofa

Wonderful little sofa with indistinct stamp to casters (no, it does nt say Cope!) almost certainly made by Howard and Sons for retail by another maker. This is probably the most comfortable sofa that it is possible to find in this diminutive size, English c.1890

Knowle antique sofa

Lovely large Knowle sofa with good strong frame and brass casters.
The Knowle sofa is one of the earliest designs of sofas that were actually comfortable. It has high sides to trap heat from the fire and the sides lower down on pieces of rope in order to vary the angle of the arms. A lowered arm allows you to see through the gap, allows ventilation and makes it more comfortable if sitting with feet on the sofa. Upholster restrained but chic for modern design space, or accessorise with sumptuous fabrics, scatter cushions, rope stays and tassles for the medieval look.

English circa 1900 £3,200
Price includes full reupholstery or take it as seen if you prefer.
