Description
A wonderful and decorative 19th Century Swedish Gustavian style sofa with original paintwork. Swedish Circa 1870. Constructed from pine, having reversible cushions giving the option of either a buttoned back or plain upholstery back. The back rail with carved Egyptian heads and bell flowers sweeps towards finely carved griffin supports on panelled plinths, raised on eight carved, turned and fluted tapering legs. Retaining the original horsehair upholstery this sofa has been recently recovered in a Swedish material and is offered in excellent condition. A very decorative sofa that will work in both a contemporary and a traditional setting. After seeing the excavations at Pompeii, Herculaneum and collections of Roman art and antiquities during his journey to Italy in 1783-4, Gustaf III was inspired towards a purer and more severe form of Neoclassicism resulting in designs like this sofa.
