Description

I bought this chaise lounge about 22 years ago. The dealer that I purchased it from couldn't give me an exact time frame of when this piece was made, ditto for the manufacturer. As far as chaise lounges, or fainting couches as they are also called goes, this one folds out into a day bed. I have looked all over the interwebs to find something that looks like this but with no success. I hope you can help me out.

Provenance

I picked this up from a dealer in Racine, WI. which has since gone out of business.

From the thumbnail images, this appears to be an antique, 19th century, about 1890, Victorian era, Eastlake style chaise lounge sofa with a fold-out bed component. The Victorian furniture market is currently slumped. Pieces, even the original period pieces, do not sell for what they used to sell for a few decades ago. The market was further impacted by the Recession. The estimate is for catalogue auction sale and is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary. Insurance and estate tax purpose appraisals will also vary and are not provided here.
