19th C Howard and Sons Leather Chesterfield

THE SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL
An exceptional Howard & Son two seater buttoned Chesterfield sofa in its original upholstered supple leather with an array of tones and patina from years of use.

The leather is in wonderful condition for its age, soft and strong. All the covered buttons are in situ and original, the sofa sits on two turned front oak legs with brass cappings and castors and two splayed back legs with typical Howard & Son numeral model marks, and stamped brass rings the turned castor on the front legs.

The sofa sits slightly lower than normal with a deep seat, the back rest has a slight double concave back, the seat and springs are in perfect condition. A truly rare and untouched original example from an esteemed English manufacture.

Back left castor has been replaced with an age related similar cast brass castor (not Howard and son)

Some elderly leather patch repairs, general age related wear. Both side panels of leather have been torn and repaired. The back also has some elderly tears and repairs.
