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.
Colonial Philippine table, made of exotic Molave wood, native to the Philippines, currently under strict protection. The matt surface of the table is covered with a natural patina with traces of use.
In the years 1565-1898 the Philippines was a Spanish colony, hence the Spanish style of the furniture. This type of table was mainly made for monastic refectory in the Philippines.
The table has interesting dimensions, it is quite narrow, so it can be used as a console table against the wall or as a kind of assistant behind the sofa.
The table top is made of one piece of wood.
