French Louis Philippe Rosewood Two Seater Sofa with Makers Mark for 1849.
An early French Louis Philippe rosewood two seater sofa with date stamp and makers mark to 1849.
Unusual for its kind due to the rosewood (normally walnut) and that it has an early stamp. Most of these sofa’s date from 1850 – 1870 so this a superb early example.
The sofa has a wonderful Art Nouveau feel with its fluid shape and has some wonderful floral carving to the front apron. The upholstery has been replaced with leather at some point in its life but could be recovered in the more appropriate velvet for £600 ex fabric if required or preferred.
