Beautiful antique elegant wing back Nineteenth Century sofa stamped WBC on leg possibly William Birch for upholstery project


Antique pretty French style salon sofa with winged shape and elegant square cut tapering legs to brass and china Copes casters. This is a very good quality piece.
The sofa is currently covered in a blue watered silk tafetta but there is some staining to this so you might like to use it as an upholstery project. The current padding is firm and useable so a simple re-cover may suffice.
Height approx 83cm width 122cm, depth 74cm, seat height 41cm.
This sofa probably dates from the second half of the Nineteenth Century. It has a leg stamp with a number and the letters WBC, possibly for William Birch who was a contemporary of Howard.
