This is a stunning quality antique English Victorian walnut two-seat couch, circa 1860, with a fantastic quality carved frame, which has been newly upholstered, and is in excellent condition. The couch has been newly upholstered in top quality William & Morris inspired silver & grey brocade upholstery, with a fine leaf pattern, finished with a fine quality matching braiding to the frame. The couch is constructed of solid walnut and boasts a stunning quality frame displaying profuse carvings throughout. The back consists of an upholstered oval frame with a central foliate pediment, above carved ribbon moulding, flanked by floral block cartouches, secured to the arms with foliate carved supports below. The arms are elegantly curved and boast further carved ribbon moulding along each top rail. The arms terminate in floral cartouches atop turned and carved supports. The couch benefits from a sprung bow fronted seat; the seat is firm but comfortable; you do not sink into the seat. The underside is finished with traditional hessian backing. Below the seat, the couch displays a carved ribbon moulded frieze. The couch is raised on turned tapering reeded legs at the front, decorated with floral cartouches, with splayed legs to the rear, with the original brass studded collars and castors. This is a strong and sturdy couch; which is noticeable by the weight of the item; it is extremely heavy to lift!
This couch features a stunning rich brown walnut colour to the frame. As it boasts the original polish it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received. It is impossible to re-create this colour if it has been re-polished.
This couch would look superb in a variety of rooms from the hallway to the living room. The couch 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.
