On offer on this occasion is a supremely-rare, superb George Smith “Conversation Piece” 4-Seat Deep-Buttoned Sofa, dressed in a peerless, elegant, top-grade and sensationally-tactile Raspberry Red Italian Velvet, and trimmed with a Pewter and Silver Bullion Fringe.
As you will no doubt be aware by your interest in this listing, George Smith pieces are the epitome of classic English furniture design, are of peerless quality, and exhibit detailing and execution of an unrivalled standard.
In a world of temporary pleasures, George Smith create beautiful furniture built to last a lifetime and, dressed in this sublime cloth, there can be no more refined, eye-catching example of their talents than this!
This piece is in superb, impeccably-maintained condition and, aside from some small, isolated, light marks to the fabric, is entirely free from fault, flaw or damage. Its fine order reflects the TLC and remarkably-infrequent use afforded it in the past and, apart from the marks mentioned, is as pristine in every regard as is possible to conceive.
Please view the images provided to confirm its superb, original condition and beguiling appearance. A more striking, quintessentially-English seat is impossible to imagine.
Please be aware that, if preferred, the Bullion Fringe can easily be removed to reveal the beautiful legs and detail this piece possesses, and to remove this potentially-divisive colour component from its appearance and aesthetic.
Regarding the colour of this gorgeous Italian Velvet, the final close-up image provided is definitely the best representation of the hue of red it possesses, as the majority of the images are far more-red-than-raspberry than the cloth appears in reality (caused and due to the light conditions present at the time of taking the images).
Its dimensions are H-99cm, W-165cm and D-165cm, and the breathtaking seating position this iconic Howard-design creates is enhanced by the use of sumptuously comfortable, generously-upholstered deep-buttoned back and seat cushions, which leaves you powerless to resist its charms. Not only does it possess an aesthetic to die for, but it is actually remarkably comfortable too!
Costing in excess of £11,000 when new, and in superb condition, it represents spectacular value for money, and we have no doubt it will serve and delight its new owner for many years to come.
Delivery of this piece to most UK mainland addresses will cost £120, and can be organised on behalf of the winning bidder upon request using one of our hand-picked panel of specialist, fully-insured independent furniture couriers.
