Mid-19th Century Settee or Sofa Louis XV Style Giltwood, English circa 1850


This is a high quality elegant, English settee or sofa in the French hepplewhite revival or Louis XV th style, made in the mid-19th century. It has a good shaped giltwood frame with a lovely flowing Rococo style, a serpentine front and cabriole legs, front and rear. All the frame has been ornately carved to a high standard. The central front leg is a nice feature as it gives additional style and support. The opulent Rococo design style was influenced by the French Louis XVth period, then interpreted by Robert Adam as seen on English furniture made in the Georgian Hepplewhite period, then revived again in the mid-19th century The whole settee has been professionally re-upholstered in a blue and gold silk brocade damask fabric.
