Early 20th Century Psychiatrist's Fainting Couch
31 October 2022
Description

This Fainting couch is from the turn of the century, and is in original condition, as far as I can tell. It is covered in diamond tucked leather, with pleating on the sides. It is a wooden framed piece, with another wooden frame below the couch that is connected by 4 wrought iron coil springs. One of the slats underneath the couch has the name of the companies that produced it, along with the patent dates. They are, "The Toledo Upholstering Company", and "The Hard Spring Company". The patent dates are in the late 1800's. This is a very unique item, and I have not been successful at finding another piece of furniture anywhere that has the same wrought iron coil springs. There are 2 tears in the leather, between 2 buttons ====== =

Dimensions

30" x 80" x 16"

Provenance

All I know about the history of the couch, is that supposedly, these 2 company's came together to produce this couch around the turn of the century. I have no idea how many more were produced, or if any more were produced at all.
