French Walnut Sofa with Original Musketeers Needlepoint Covering
This stunning, large, and very comfortable hand-carved walnut high-backed sofa sports its original needlepoint upholstery featuring the Three Mousquetieres, d'Artagnan and the Queen of France. The needlework is in near-perfect condition and has beautifully muted colors of peach, salmon, cream and an olive-green. The walnut has been stripped of its original dark finish and waxed, so it has a lovely light and warm color. The top back corner edge, which is covered in its original gold velvet fabric, has a small tear that likely can be repaired or the backside can be recovered. Fabulous in a large hallway, drawing room, or library.
