Empire-Style Mahogany Settee

early 20th century, the padded back with a backswept ormolu-mounted crest, joined by paneled arms on sphinx uprights to the padded seat, raised on shaped legs headed by ormolu winged lion masques and ending in paw feet.
h. 41-1/2", w. 65", d. 23-1/2"


In overall good condition. Moderate rubbing, shrinkage and wear consistent with age and use. The legs and frames appear to be tight and very sturdy. One arm is slightly loose at its front base, and has a repaired break a few inches in front of the stile. The other arm exhibits a slight gap at its joint with the stile, but is tight at that point. There are missing bronze roundels from the outside ends of the crest rail. The upholstery is in good condition, with some light wear.
