Lynnfield (Block House) Duncan Phyfe Sofa #197-25 SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
This is one of the most beautiful fabrics found on Lynnfield Furniture and my favorite...it is silk damask in mauve color, alternating solid stripes with floral on beige background. The shine of the silk has made a slight glare from the flash in the photo and it is difficult to show close up how beautiful this fabric really is. Also notice how carefully the stripes of the fabric are matched up at the sides, perfectly even. Lovely curvatures on this Duncan Phyfe sofa with delicate curved legs. Elegant inlay borders the front under the seat. Tips of front legs are gold gilt. This is made just like the full size version. Overall Length is 7", 1 inch scale. c. 1948-50 period. Beautiful condition, with no breaks or repairs. The silk and chintz fabrics used by Lynnfield were some of the most beautiful fabrics made during that era on dollhouse furniture. This era Lynnfield furniture was sold through the Chestnut Hill catalogs and also in stores throughout the country including F.A.O. Schwarz.
