19th Century English Camel Back Sofa in the Style of Howard & Sons, c1880

$4,328.08

About

A superb quality antique Country house sofa raised on 4 nicely turned legs with original brass castors. The silk upholstery is I believe to be original and not without its flaws with some historic water marks and a small tear at the back which does not affect use. We recommend this sofa be upholstered. The look and build quality of this sofa is very much in the manner of Howard and son's having lightly padded and sprung arms and back, the seat pad being filled with horse hair and also being sprung from the base make this a very comfortable place to sit. A truly one off top quality piece of Victorian craftsmanship! Please view the images carefully as I have tried to capture any imperfections. If you would like this sofa but with a cover of your choice to suit your interior please get In touch as this is something we can have done for you. We do use a network of highly skilled traditionally trained upholsterers so if you do wish to have this sofa covered in a fabric of your choice we can arrange that on your behalf. Measures: 174cm wide 83cm deep 82cm high.
