A tufted early Victorian sofa with a curved and swayed back. Scrolled arms over a shaped bench cushion. Pleated skirt.
The original resides at Broughton Castle, the moated home of the 20th Lord Saye and Sele, whose family history includes signing the Magna Carta. This diminutive sofa floats superbly. With the user literally hugged in the corners, it can function as a tête-à-tête or an end-of-bed bench. In the right room, this loveseat would be remarkable in pairs. English circa 1845.
