About this item

We are delighted to offer for sale this stunning sofa and armchair suite of very rare oversized Victorian Barrel back armchair and sofa in fully restored hand-dyed brown leather
These are a good early pair, circa 1860, they have the period fluted backs, coil-sprung base with hessian cover, horsehair and hessian padding, the wings are absolutely massive, both pieces are very substantial, they weigh maybe three times as much as a modern reproduction piece. The feet are hand-carved in the early Georgian manor but as mentioned I believe these to be later Victorian pieces

Both pieces have been fully restored to include being hand-dyed this deep cigar brown colour, the hessian base covers have been replaced, some repairs to the cushion linings and base covers and so on, they are a good old pair in ready to go condition
The only point to note is the back of the sofa has been repaired, there was a large straight-line tear in the leather which has been padded and sealed internally, we could have / still can replace the whole back panel of leather however as its the original hide we have left it as it is
