Here is a fine quality antique English Edwardian mahogany marquetry inlaid two-seat window couch, circa 1900, which has been newly upholstered, and is in good condition. The couch has been newly upholstered in top quality structured cotton upholstery, interspersed with coffee colour dots in a diamond pattern, on a cream colour background, finished with fine quality braiding to the frame. The couch is constructed of solid mahogany and features a lovely oval pierced fretwork back, which incorporates a stunning floral marquetry panel, flanked by box wood string inlay. The frame of the couch is inlaid with further boxwood string inlay. The right hand side of the couch incorporates a padded backrest with a shaped arm, above a scroll shaped top rail. The left hand side of the couch is decorated with a lovely interspersed scroll end, which also incorporates further string inlay. The padded seat is supported by a new hessian webbed underside, which ensures the seat is well supported. The frieze displays further string inlay detail. The couch is raised on cabriole legs to the front, which incorporate further floral marquetry detail and inlay and plain out swept legs to the rear.
This couch features a rich brown mahogany colour to the frame. As it boasts the original polish it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received. It is impossible to re-create this colour if it has been re-polished.
