The masks are held by acanthus leaf scrolled supports raised on tapering panelled legs headed by gadrooned and foliate collars, joined by Vitruvian- scrolled foliate H-framed stretchers terminating on gadrooned feet.
In excellent condition retaining the original gilt work this sofa has been reupholstered by us in a good quality Voyage linen with gimp braiding having the original feather down cushion.
A very comfortable, decorative sofa with the original gilt work and exquisite carvings.
This rare sofa stands extremely well and will complement any collection or setting.
