Antique Carved Couch

Paw Feet & Swan Neck

This auction is for the great carved sofa pictured and described below. This one has some of the best combination of carvings I have ever seen and t is gorgeous wood trim on all sides. It has a great floral motif carving on the center back. That wood leads all the way down the shoulders. The face of the arm has a delicate carved swan neck. The wood on the face of the arms runs all the way down the the skirt area and connects to the best hairy paw feet I have seen. Sort of a Duncan Phyfe style leg but with very detailed carvings. Not only on the front legs but the back as well. This sofa is solid and sturdy with no odors, stains or problems. It is one of the more comfortable I have sat in especially since it looks to have been professionally redone sometime in the past 10 years. Ready to use as is or a great piece to recover. You don't find many with this much detail.

This is a very nice sofa measuring 37" tall at the back and 19" tall at the seat. It is a full 80" long and 27 1/2" deep.

This is the front.

This is a view of the detailed floral motif carvings on the back.

This is the wood running down the shoulders.

This is the delicate swan on the face of the arms.

This is another view. That is the original finish in nice shape.

This is the hairy paw foot. All four legs are like this. This lower board could use polishing. You are seeing it straight out of the home without any polishing.

This is a side view.

This is a view from the rear.

This is a great antique sofa featuring:

This item is being safely stored in our 15,000 sq ft warehouse pictured below and located in Bel Air, MD 21015. Only 3 miles and 2 turns from I-95 exit 80 just north of Baltimore.

The warehouse is always full but changing. Trucks come and go daily with new stuff coming in and sold stuff leaving for delivery. Only about 200 pc's per month on average are sold on the Internet. The rest goes to auction.

We can store this item in our warehouse free of charge for up to a couple months if needed. We can deliver it ourselves between about Philadelphia and DC for around $75-100. Closer distances may be cheaper but $50 is about the best were going to do anyw unless you live right in our town which is free. If you prefer to pick it up, that is fine. We are available 24/7 with 24 hours notice via email. If you have a shipping service you use we are happy to coordinate with them but the expense is yours. We do not provide ropes, blankets or any sort of packing.

If you need help getting this item shipped we have sources we deal with regularly.

I can have this item professionally delivered to most large cities in the US including the west coast for $350 or less.

East Coast shipping is much cheaper. Usually $100-250 max. We have trucks running from Florida to NYC regularly so deliveries within 50-100 miles of the I-95 corridor are fastest and cheap. Deliveries along the 64, 81, 20, 70 and 40 corridors are also cheap all the way to the west coast. One of our drivers lives in NYC, one lives in Roanoke, VA and one lives in Chicago. They each come weekly. Because of that we can provide the cheapest and fastest shipping along the whole east half of the country. We do the west coast within 6 weeks. We pretty much go anyw cheap but our shippers don't go to the west coast much north of CA. If you live in some off the wall town that is an hour from the nearest highway obviously it will cost a little more. Please ask me for a fast guaranteed quote if you are in doubt. I do not have...
