circa 1905

walnut, velvet upholstery

43 ½ x 56 ¼ x 28 ½ in. (110.5 x 142.9 x 72.4 cm)

Overall in very good condition. The wood presents with minor surface scratches, abrasions, dents and nicks concentrated to the edges and feet as consistent with age and gentle use and was possibly refinished at some point in the history of the work. The settee has preserved all of its carved decorative motifs in walnut and presents with light dust and surface residue in the recessed areas of the design. The backside of the wood frame with a small area of sensitive restoration measuring 1 ¼ inches and a small chip measuring ⅜ on an inch that appears stable and not visually distracting. The velvet upholstery was sensitively replaced and presents beautifully overall with minor areas of wear and surface soiling.
