The quality carcass upholstered in a sandy gold coloured button-back velvet with antique slub, the whole sitting on ring turned oak front legs and sabre rears and surviving from late Victorian period England.

The golden upholstery is mid twentieth century, and in pretty good shape with some minor wear, and we have administered a full clean to the whole. The sofa sits fairly low but then that is the style and it does not require any attention and is ready to use.

Chesterfield sofas share a complex history, alongside the elite, the privileged and aristocrats. History reveals that these types of couches have been commonly used in the confines of old institutions, government buildings and luxurious homes for generations. A room, in the 1900’s, would not be complete, unless the master owns a Chesterfield sofa.

A golden opportunity to acquire a quality sofa at a good price.
