Babette Schweizer Sofa with Molded Figures and Heads #191-26 SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
Fantastic piece of furniture, made by the German firm of Babette Schweizer. It is so delicate and intricate with so much detailing, it is very diffcult to describe. This piece needs to be examined slowly and very closely to fully appreciate all its intricacies, with lots of scrolling, urn shapes, vines and floral shapes all over. The first figure ones sees is the majestic elk molded on the back rest. The next details are the griffon heads molded onto the protruding sides underneath which are two peacock heads by the arm rests. And then, when one keeps examing this wonderful item, one finds the face of the North Wind at the center portion of the skirt. And as one keeps looking, more and more detailing is uncovered. This is an exquisitely made piece and would look superb in a dollhouse or on a display shelf. Silver color. It is slightly larger than 1" scale or what is commonly referred to as large 1" scale; size is 4" at highest point, 4 1/2" long and approximately 2" deep. Made in Germany, most likely around 1890. Very delicate but in fine condition. This beautiful sofa is also pictured with a Babette Schweizer table, which is sold separately.
