Swedish Gustavian Sofa Mid-19th Century, Carved Sphinx and Lion Motifs

About

Swedish Gustavian style mid-19th century carved beechwood sofa, full bodied hand carved sphinx support the arms. Hand carved lion heads accent the top leaf carved backrail, with extensive carving on most beech surfaces, off white linen upholstery. This Swedish sofa was originally painted, but though the quality of the carving was superb, the paint that was used did not stand the test of time, so there are only remnants of the original paint left; the result is a very contemporary look, circa 1850.
