German Sofa, Pillow and Chair with Dresden Paper #195-23 SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
Fantastic 1" scale very early German parlor furniture, made from light pearwood, and upholstered with a wonderful early soft chintz fabric of pink roses, brown branches, green leaves and blue flowers. The set consists of a sofa, matching separate pillow and chair. The edges of the fabric are trimmed with very colorful Dresden paper with roses, forget-me-nots and gold and the sides of the sofa and chair are accented with gold and white raised dots Dresden paper. The arms of both pieces curl and loop inward, and both have beautiful form. Fabulous and very early and hard to find, c. 1870 period, possibly even earlier. The length of the sofa is 4 3/8" and height of both are 3 1/2". The separate pillow is approximately 1 1/4" square and is also edged with the lovely colorful Dresden paper. These pieces are just so lovely and, understandably, because of their age are fragile, but in really nice condition with no breaks. The sofa and pillow are padded, while the chair is unpadded.
