SOFA, MODEL NO. FH436
mahogany, leather upholstery
39 x 59¼ x 25½ in. (73.6 x 105.4 x 64.7 cm)
Overall in good condition. This two-seater sofa presents with the original black leather upholstery. The leather with expected signs of age, namely scattered areas of light discoloration and crackling concentrated to the seating area. Tears to the proper left side of the backrest and to the cushions have been professionally restored in a manner that is consistent with the original design. The original mahogany feet with surface scratches and light edge wear concentrated to the side edges. Areas of loss to the side edges have been professionally restored in a manner that is not visually distracting.
The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition.
