The sofa is complemented with a shaped crest rail and highlighted with a wonderful figured bird’s-eye maple panel surrounded by mahogany veneer. The upholstered back is flanked by delicate, turned reeded arm supports and carved scrolled-shaped arms. The bow-front seat frame is supported by finely carved reeded legs ending on brass cup casters. Superb form and quality to the cabinetry.
