An Outstanding Large Scale Parlor Set
It takes a long time to find some of this large scale furniture. Of course, it is also a quality set with its applied ormolu decoration around the frame of the sofa and the chairs that makes it so rare. The pretty flowered chintz fabric of birds and flowers is wonderful as is the beige background that has a soft cream flowered design. We can see some slight staining on the sofa, but overall, it is truly a magnificent set. The set has never been repaired or touched since I bought it many  years ago. There are no breaks or reglued pieces on the sofa, it is solid and gorgeous. It has its original blue glued paper on the back. The chairs are upholstered in the same fabric without any discoloration. The ormolu decoration on the chairs appears on the front of the chairs; at the base of the seat and on the center bar and top. The chairs are perfect except for one reglued side piece on one chair!
Measurements: The sofa is 6"h. at the peak of the crest x 11" long.
                            The chairs are 5-7/8" tall.
Circa: Middle 19th Century
Price: SOLD
