Antique pretty and shapely high backed French Louis XV style timber framed canape salon sofa with upholstered back, arms and seat. The sofa probably dates from the end of the Nineteenth Century.
There is a moulded timber frame which is probably walnut.
The upholstery is in reasonable condition, sound and firm, this can be used as it is or you may prefer to simply recover with a toile or linen. Some stitches have come undone on one back seam and at the back of the sofa. The separate squab cushion has a patch of wear so would be better recovered, it is feather filled. There are some slight knocks and scuffs to the frame as expected with an antique sofa, but it is a lovely piece. The arms are beautifully knurled and moulded.
The sofa has a shaped protruding seat and at the front are four pretty moulded cabriole legs.
Dimensions of sofa approx back H41 inches, arm H29 inches, seat H20 inches, back W76 inches, arm W68 inches, seat W63 inches between arms, seat D26 inches, overall D34 inches.
