Antique pretty French Louis XV style salon sofa or day bed with high ends and feather filled cushions to provide a back. There is a full width squab cushion on the seat. The sofa probably dates from the end of the Nineteenth Century or beginning of the C20th.
There are some slight knocks, losses and scuffs to the frame as expected with an antique sofa, see photos, but nothing major and it is a stunning piece. The sofa would make a terrific painting project.
The front legs are cabriole shaped, with dainty slipper feet, and the sofa front is serpentine shaped.
The upholstery is reasonably firm and the feather cushions are plump, but the fabric is a little tired. You may prefer to cover this piece in a pretty toile de jouy or plain linen.
Approx dimensions; 187cm wide at widest point, height 51cm to seat cushion, 95cm to back cushion.
