Rare form Rococo Victorian rosewood sofa in the bird pattern.  The back is ornately open carved with flowers, roses, “C” scrolls and , a very special, pair of birds and nest with three eggs.   There is a nice cluster of flowers in the center of the bottom skirt.  The sofa was refinished and reupholstered a number of years ago.  The joints on the back have been re-enforced by four custom made iron braces (see photo).  The carvings on this sofa – especially the top bird crest – are exceptional!    Circa:  1850   Dimensions: 41.5″H  x  71″L    Finish:   Refinished and reupholsered by a previous owner.  The lovely rosewood grain is well displayed.     Price:  $1995.00
