LARGE ANTIQUE FRENCH EMPIRE SOFA CANAPE BANQUETTE-UPHOLSTERY PROJECT. The Show-wood frame is made from Mahogany, and I think comes from the Loire Valley in France.
In Good Structural Condition, the joints are good and sound, the Mahogany could do with a bit of a Polish, and it being French, there is a bit of what looks like Old woodworm, which a. Going over with some Woodworm Killer will sort out.
As can be seen in the pictures the upholstery has pretty well reached the point where it has become a Project, and probably shouldn't be attempted by a complete beginner. However it does all appear to be complete, and I would say that it is definitely a Project worth embarking on, it was obviously an expensive piece of furniture in it's youth. The seat is 19.5" (50cm) from front to back and 21" (53cm) to the floor, it is 38 (96cm) high at the back. This is an antique second-hand piece of furniture and will obviously have signs of wear, so have a good look at the photos, but don't be put off! Come and join the minority that appreciate the individuality and character of Antique Furniture.
