A German, late Empire sofa, attributed to Wilhelm Kimbel (1786-1869), dated circa 1830.
Sofa was made by well known cabinetmaker Wilhelm Kimbel (1786-1869) in a furniture factory in Mainz, Southern Germany.
Kimbel often decorated furniture with solid wood sculptural forms. Here, the interesting decorative elements, are carved eagles, the wings of which transform into the decoration of the armrests.
This type of furniture appears as ADLER CANAPÉ in Graphic notebooks for which drawings were made by Wilhelm Kimbel.
The sofa is in mahogany, finished with bee-wax and upholstered with natural linen. It is fully restored with keeping its natural patina and charm. The fabric is given also from the backside to make it freestanding.
