Huge Rare Victorian Horse Hair Fully Restored Brown Leather Chesterfield Sofa

About

We are delighted to offer for sale this stunning exceptionally rare huge original early Victorian tobacco brown leather fully restored Chesterfield buttoned sofa This is the model that everyone wants, it is the 100% perfect and correct oversized club model, the arms are easily 100% larger than later and reproduction models, the frame is coil sprung everywhere, arms, back, base, the padding is all horse hair which was the finest wadding of its day, you can tell because it crunches everywhere. The original Chesterfield sofas are pretty much the only chesterfields that are actually comfortable, pretty much all others are hard on your lower back, this is sprung as mentioned so offers a wonderful seat. The sofa has been fully restored as you can see, the leather had naturally faded back to the plain colour of the hide, its been hand dyed to this lovely tobacco brown color by my leather polishers, simply put this sofa is the finest example you will find anywhere today. There are marks on the outside left arm in the form of light scratches, there has been some van diking to the sofa base. Dimensions: Height 70.5cm Width 252cm Depth 100cm Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point. This item is available for collection from our Wimbledon warehouses. Condition: Please view the very detailed pictures as they form part of the description around condition Please note vintage period and original items such as leather seating will always have natural patina in the form of cracking creasing and wear, we recommend regular waxing to ensure no moisture is lost, also hand dyed leather is not recommended to sit in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as it will dry out and fade.
