About

Very beautiful Swedish antique Gustavian two- three-seat sofa loveseat intricately decorated with carved cane work, acanthus leaf motifs and shell carvings. One of the best examples of its type we have ever found with a super comfy fully sprung seat and webbed back. Original gilt finish has developed a lovely patina with age. Lovely carved fluted legs in the Classic Gustavian style with rosette motifs at the top. We will recover the sofa in calico prior to shipping ready for you to add your final top fabric on arrival.
