Royal House Antiques is delighted to offer for sale this stunning fully restored Circa 1900 hand dyed Whiskey brown leather sofa with original horsehair padding and coil sprung front edge. The sofa has been fully restored to include having the old colour stripped out, its then been hand dyed this glorious whisky brown colour, which is exclusive to my leather polishers. The padding is all original horsehair filled so it has that great crunch. The legs are solid walnut and have been custom made specially for this frame, they come with 8mm axles so they can be unscrewed for ease of transport. This sofa is actually a very rare model, it has a sprung front edge, what that means is usually there is a solid timber bar which runs across the front of the sofa and sits behind your legs, on this sofa its all coil springs, it makes the seat exceptionally comfortable compared to standard Chesterfields.
