This stunning, vintage recamier sofa (fainting couch) is from the Civil War era. Soft upholstery fabric is flawless (no stains, tears, fading, wear or odor). It is a rich, warm beige with floral accents of muted persimmon, sage green and an elegant shade of burgundy, all outlined in gold. The lighter fabric shades contrast with the wine back cas well as the dark walnut, adding to the stunning beauty and classical lines of this attractive piece.
Sturdy bottom casters, upon which the sofa rests, are mounted just behind the front feet only.
As is expected (and often desired) with any antique furniture of its age, the frame shows a minimal amount of usage upon close examination. However, there are no cracks, abrasions, nor discolorations and the finish is rich and smooth. The frame is rock-solid, and joints are tight. No repairs of any kind are needed: it's ready to enjoy! Photos of the back of the sofa reveal the expertise and attention to detail of the reupholstering agent.
Any room of your home, from foyer to living room to master bedroom, would be a great setting for this rare jewel. It will bring pride and joy to anyone fortunate enough to possess this instant conversation piece!
