XVI. Louis Style furniture set

Antique sofas

Acquired from

For sale

The wood parts are in "good" shape, what kind of wood sadly don't know. The furniture is in used state has not been restored at all. The tapestry has some tears on it and the gilding faded as well.


Inherited this antique set from my father who bought it very long ago around 30 years minimum from an antique shop or collector, that i don't know specifially. I'm not competent to decide this furniture real value, so i ask an appraisal. Some more experienced antique lover friends sad that it's probably XVI. Louis style furtniture set around XIX. century, but i would like to know it's not some "weak copy" made much after only the style the same. Thank you very much in advance for your help. PS.: Crucifix not part of any of this forgot to remove and my english far from perfect too apologize.

What does this mean?

Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This Salon Set in gilt wood in a Louis Louis XVI Style of the Napoleon III Period was made approximately in 1860-1880 in France. The set consists of a sofa and two chairs and a table. The gobelin tapestry design features children dressed in 18th century fashion and various animals. The original gobelin woven fabric is threadbare and partly severely damaged. Nonetheless it is a lovely set and I could imagine a restoration or replacement of the fabric would be possible. There are still a few gobelin manufacturers in operation in France and Belgium. The low estimate would be the approximate value if sold as is, the upper value would be the value if successfully restored. I hope the information provided was helpful to you ( and by the way - your english is better than mine).
