The artisans who created this  Antique French sofa, or canapé, during the waning years of the reign of Napoleon III showed the court's obvious leanings towards Victorian tastes, with graceful lines, foliate embellishment, and lavish contours. Crafted from exotic imported mahogany, the French styling stands out with the lion's paw feet. Velvet upholstery is not new but somewhat serviceable.
Circa 1870s.
