Offered for sale is a fabulous hand carved 18th century walnut Spanish-Portuguese settee or sofa with a serpentine Baroque curved frame. The settee features a tripartite arched back with in-curving C-scrolled arm rests continuing down to cabriole legs, which terminate in a hoofed or Braganza-carved Spanish toe. The valanced skirt, with its beautifully chiseled frame, complements the sinuous lines of the sofa.
The sofa is totally hand constructed with pegged mortise and tenon joinery. It has a beautiful aged patina that has been refurbished with minor supportive restorations to the carving and legs. The sofa has been recently reupholstered in a silk blend Scalamandré cream-colored Damask that goes with anything and brings out the rich darkness of the aged walnut. It is ready to use and in excellent condition.
Size: 36 ½" Height x 78" Length x 26" Depth.
