Why Victorian Antique Furniture Gets A Bad Rap
Holy Moly. Now I know why people who aren’t fans of Victorian antique furniture look at pieces from the period and condemn it’s over-the-topness. Technically this piece is probably very late Victorian Renaissance Revival style.
This sofa is part of a set that Fontaine’s will be selling on the 18th and it is a Victorian-hater’s nightmare. I love RJ Horner items, whose carved furniture this resembles, but even I would not be able to put this one in my home. It is so overwrought it even has two-tier tables integrated on either side of the sofa. No need to buy end tables – they’re included!
The set is probably incredible to see in person and it will make quite a statement in a fine home somewhere.
Expected sale range is $15,000 to $25,000. More detail images at the listing.
So how do you like the set?
