Early 19th Century Regency Mahogany Scroll Arm Sofa of Classical Form

About

Elegant early 19th century Regency mahogany sofa or settee with scroll ends and standing on turned legs. This sofa has the wonderful thin sections and delicacy of line that is typical of the early 19th century, pre Victorian, period upholstery. Following on from the classical influences of decorative arts and architecture in the 18th century this period of Regency furniture owes much to the excitement at the time surrounding the excavations at Pompeii and Herculanium and interest in Greek and Roman classical form in general. This sofa was made before the invention of the coiled spring, so the seat is thin and ought to have a separate squab cushion of stitched horsehair or feathers if you prefer. English, circa 1820.  Measures: 214cm/84"/7' wide. 66cm/26" deep. 86cm/34" high max. 41cm/16" high seat without squab.
