New York Mahogany and Gilded Neo-Classical Sofa

American-New York Ca. 1820

A very fine sofa equal in quality to known Duncan Phyfe examples.

An unusual feature is the carved lion heads at the arm terminals. Appears to retain its original finish.

$8700

Condition

Excellent unrestored original antique condition including some of the original upholstery foundation as well as the original gold and paint on the legs. Replaced corner blocks and two replaced braces at the seat rails. Unfilled tack holes at the bottom of the rear seat rail.

It is extraordinary to find these sofas with their feet retaining the original gold leaf and paint.
