A British colonial sofa in mahogany with a beautifully carved serpentine shaped crest rail centered by a floral design. The front of the frame, legs and arms are carved and the scrolled ends of the arms display finely carved floral roundels; a motif repeated on blocks above the legs. The seat and back have recently been re-caned in a pattern typical to the colonial style while the back has been double caned. The legs with a carved inverted cup, terminating in a large disc and a peg foot.
The sofa is in good condition and has been lovingly restored to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing.
