A solid mahogany American Empire design sofa was lavishly carved with lion paw feet and classical acanthus leaves, signed "Mayhew of Milwaukee," this sofa dates from Wisconsin about 1900.
The original finish is very well preserved with warm patina and has been waxed and buffed, so all that is needed to maintain its luster is an occasional wipe with a soft dry cloth.
Bolster pillows are authentic and this sophisticated antique furniture has been newly upholstered. The frame is tight and strong, springs are firm.
Measurements are 7' 1" long, 30" deep, 35" tall and the seat is 20" high.
