Antique Swedish Satin Birch Bergere Sofa
This antique Swedish Bergere three seater sofa is satin birch & has just been completely re-upholstered in a neutral coloured fabric with new feather cushions. Consequently, it’s very comfortable, because the cushions are generously filled. The frame is beautifully carved on the top of the backs behind the cushions. There’s also good carving on the swept over arms, plus below the arms all the way down to the ball & claw feet. There’s more carvings around the bottom of the frame too. This sofa is very fine quality, in good condition & structurally sound. There is one small repair to the cane on one of the back panels, showing in the images. It’s a small piece of patching & was like this when we got it. It’s not that noticeable, being on the lower back & certainly doesn’t affect the overall tightness of that particular cane panel, plus there is another cane panel inside of that. This panel could be re-caned, but it’s really not worth doing, because of the cost & time to do it. All the panels are double cane, which is always a sign of better quality. I would date this sofa to around the 1920-30’s period. If you feel the upholstery is too light for you & I understand that not everyone wants it that light, we can arrange recovering for about £300-£400 plus fabric. It’s still a very reasonable price for an antique sofa of this quality.
