This is a superb quality Edwardian marquetry inlaid rosewood salon sofa, circa 1900, which has been newly upholstered in a beautiful pale gold & ivory structured silk brocade, finished with ivory braiding and is in good condition. The couch boasts satinwood floral string inlay to the arms and frame. The sofa incorporates a padded scroll backrest and down swept padded arms terminating on carved floral knuckles. The frame is decorated with stunning marquetry inlaid carved panels, depicting inlaid urns with crossed torches, flanked by elaborate foliate fretwork, interspersed between rows of fine mahogany spindles. Satinwood string inlay adorns the whole frame and further marquetry floral work is visible at the foot of the arms. The sofa stands on pretty ring turned feet and it boasts the original mug castors. The back feet are splayed, which is a sign of good quality.

This sofa features a mellow rosewood colour to the frame. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic mellow colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and the years of care and cleaning it has received. It is impossible to recreate this colour if it has been re-polished.

This sofa would look superb in a variety of rooms, from the hallway to the living room or bedroom. It would certainly grace any home and is a great investment, as it is extremely functional. So don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.
