Original Antique French Louis XIII Sofa with Earlier Aubusson Upholstery

About

French Louis XIII sofa from circa 1690 offers earlier circa 1640 Aubusson upholstery. Out of a premier collection, this special sofa offers not only a significant carved antique frame but, also a stunning example of early 17th century Aubusson at its absolute finest. My expert team of restorers went over this sofa with a fine toothed comb and strengthened each and every loose joint and repaired any missing bits and pieces, just as it would have been done 200 years ago. The Aubusson is in very good condition and makes this sofa as visually appealing as it is comfortable to sit on. A rare find, rumor has it that we purchased this sofa under the noses of a famous museum. This is the opportunity to own a piece of history 300 years +. Provenance: -Collection of Fern Bedaux, Château de Candé, Touraine. -Auction of his estate, 1972. Towers. -Castle of the Lion, Preuilly on Claise, Touraine. -Château de Mardelle, Indre. Referenced in a book by: Marie Françoise Sassier--"Candé between dream and reality" Council of Indre and Loire, Tours, 2005. In the library, the sofa on pp. 104 and 128. This furniture related with Louis XIII resided at The Château de Candé in Touraine, and was utilized in the marriage reception of Edward VII and Wallis Simpons, future Prince and Princess of Wales on June 3, 1937.
