19thC French Painted & Upholstered Settee c.1880

The painted French two-seater settee of beautiful proportions, showing the original French grey green paint now worn with age, the curved and swept enveloping carcass having scalloped sides and seven fluted tapering legs with floral cartouches, the whole being freshly upholstered in a floral linen fabric of green and pink fronds with double piping, and surviving from the last quarter of nineteenth century France.

The settee is in very good condition having been upholstered recently in a very good House of Hackney linen and then using all of the traditional methods. She is strong and sturdy and ready for daily use. There is a small amount of old sporadic worm to the frame but it is long gone and only in a very small quantity.

Of a particularly desirable shape and size, this ticks all of the boxes. Stunning.

'Doe & Hope specialise in decorative, rare and unusual antiques from around the world with a particular interest in the atmosphere that surrounds an object, taking a cinematic approach in the presentation of our inventory. Our house style is probably best described as theatrical; being a concoction of old money, dramatic decorative, and faded gentility, with common themes of both humour and the macabre running through our inventory, that includes both academic and playful objects.

We are members of LAPADA and were included in Homes & Antiques '50 Best Antique Shops' in the UK for 2016. We have had a concession in the prestigious Liberty of London department store in 2015 and have also won the Antiques Young Gun of the Year award for 2014.
