A very rare Italian neoclassical two seater sofa. The elegant arched back with carved and watergilt acanthus scrolls . Two gently curving armrests with carved and gilt acanthus leaves lead down to the shaped front double seat raised on six traditional turned and fluted Louis XVI legs.
Good original gilding and burnished gesso finish and upholstered seat and back in Regency stripe fabric.
Italian late 18th century
