THOMAS MOLESWORTH

SOFA


circa 1938

burled fir, red and black leather upholstery, hammered brass tacks

32 x 88¼ x 33¾ in. (81.3 x 224.2 x 85.7 cm)

Overall in very good condition. The wood with scattered minor surface scratches, abrasions, discolorations and dents consistent with age and use. The wood with some occasional irregularities and separations to the wood grain, which is typical of inland fir, and most of which were filled in by the artist at the time of production. The leather has been sensitively replaced in a manner consistent with the artist’s intent and is in very good condition with scattered very minor surface scratches, abrasions and creasing concentrated to the seat cushions, and with some occasional very minor cloudy discolorations consistent with age and use. The fringe decorating the armrests is in very good condition with some subtle curling, which adds to the textured effect. The cushion loops are all in very good stable condition.
