An Outstanding Ebony Boulle Sofa

 

This is one of six pieces that occupied the bedroom of the Ram’s Head  Dolls’ House. When these are gone, there will be very little left in this category. This sofa was placed against the wall, opposite the bed. It has an incredible scalloped back with a center crest that rises up in the middle of the sofa. The gold transfer work is bold and strong. It encompasses the entire back and front of this piece. The velvet upholstery is a garnet red that has a pleasing appearance. A great piece for a parlor, hallway or bedroom!

 

Measurements:  The sofa is 4-1/2”h. x 7-1/2”w.

Circa: 1850

Price: SOLD
