Scroll down for 6 more photos

This elegant sofa has fine stylized lines with a bowed seat making for a commodious and comfortable sofa.  The arms are carefully scrolled and restrained as is the arching of the back which complements the seat.  The legs are Hepplewhite in style with spade feet, which are reinforced with their original stretchers.  Note the nice arch to the rear legs, which form a continuous line with the upholstered back.  (See side view.)   The fabric that is on it is a silk, as we received it.  The foundation materials are all in excellent condition with no breaks or alterations.
