Dating to the Karl Johan period, this antique Empire style settee was fashioned in a boxy style, with high back and arms, emphasizing the lovely grain in the wood. It is accented by contrasting, ebonized architectural, pilasters on the front. The seat of this unusual piece opens to reveal a storage box. It is finished with a loose upholstered cushion.
