England, c1780, in the Hepplewhite Taste




Of very graceful form in the late 18th century Hepplewhite taste,
the arched and rounded upholstered back extending into fully upholstered arms,
over a seat with single loose “tacked”* down and feather cushion,
raised on reeded tapering legs ending in period brass caps and casters, the back legs with a graceful rake


Condition: Excellent; now newly covered in cotton and ready for slipcover or upholstering;
the interior structure original and not altered, with webbing and horsehair (no springs);
most brass caps and caster period (possibly original);
*(hand “tacking" the cushion filling keeps the down and feather filling from shifting)


Note : Sofas of graceful and simple form are difficult to find. 
Most have at least one or two back legs replaced, and have a style that does not easily blend with contemporary interiors. 
This is an excellent example that blends easily with any period or style. 
It is covered only in the undercovering needed before either upholstery or slipcover of your choice.


The traditional settee or sofa upholstery of the 18th had a “tight seat” of horsehair,
or in the 19th century, horsehair and springs. 
As the long down cushion affords far more comfort,
conversion from the “tight seat” to the loose cushion is not only acceptable, but often more desirable. 
The frame is not altered to accommodate the conversion.
