My mother gave me this sofa, but neither of us has any idea what period/style it could be. Opinions?

RE: antique sofa

Regency style......but it's a Victorian interpretation.
My guess is 1890-ish.
Looks like mahogany...
Pretty but miserably uncomfortable! I have a sofa sort of like that but mine is Empire period...used mainly to throw coats on when I am having a party!

RE: antique sofa

Linda, you are right, it is definitely very uncomfortable! Thanks for your input!


RE: antique sofa

But this has the look of a Sheraton. Does it not, Linda C?

My cousin just bought one to put in her foyer, not for really sitting.


RE: antique sofa

Nope...Sheraton is lighter, daintier...
