Late 19th Century Antique Swedish Gustavian Sofa, Three-Seat

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Late 19th century antique Swedish Gustavian sofa in later white paint with intricate carved canework , scroll detailing, rosettes, fluted legs and central carved relief.

Immense detail is really pleasing on the eye and unusually it has the two central legs bent slightly inward instead of going straight down like the four outer legs.

Seats two-three and has a fully sprung seat for maximum comfort and will ship to you with the seat restuffed and recovered in calico after we strip off the old fabric.

We can repaint in a color of your choice for an extra cost if you wish.
