This mahogany lion carved sofa and parlor set consists of 5 pieces; loveseat, 2 armchairs and 2 side chairs. The loveseat measures 42.5” tall, 54” wide and 28” deep. The two armchairs measure 40” tall, 28” wide and 28” deep. All three have ornate crest rails with carved central cartouche. Notice the flame mahogany panel heavily inlaid with mother-of-pearl and other contrasting woods creating a trailing vine and floral effect – beautiful! The tops of the arms have carved acanthus leaves followed by arm rests displaying intricately carved roaring lion heads. The centers of the arms are wide and encourage resting. The sofa and chairs rest on boldly carved paw feet complete with toenails! The sofa and one chair have deep, comfortable seats with springs and upholstered backs. One armchair has an ornately and deeply pierced carved center back splat. This upholstered seat is also generous in size but the springs will need to be retied which any upholsterer can do. The gold striped upholstery has very minor stains and could be used as is. The two side chairs measure 38” tall, 24” wide and 23” deep. The carved cartouche and crest rail with flame mahogany and inlay is repeated on both chairs. The spring seats are extremely comfortable and the fabric is in good condition. One of the side chairs has a deeply carved center splat same as the one armchair. The finish on all 5 pieces is in excellent condition having a deep rich color and patina. All the frames are tight and extremely sturdy. They are designed to take use and abuse. What a statement this set will make in any home or office. Condition: Excellent, Circa: 1890.
