There is around 50-100 high definition super-sized pictures at the bottom of this page. The sofa is upholstered with thick premium 100% cattle hide untreated plain russet leather originally, this method of upholstery is substantially more expensive than using predyed leather, you can still have the best English Chesterfields made in this manor today.
The way you can tell the piece is an original hand dyed Chesterfield is by pulling back the folds of leather, in the crease you will see the natural colour of the hide, these sofas are made with plain leather and then hand dyed to the customers specific colour choice, no two pieces are ever exactly the same and this process goes back hundreds of years. All in all this is basically the best of the best colour patina and finish wise, if youre looking for the best then look no further!
We have deep cleaned hand condition waxed and hand polished the sofa from top to bottom, there has been one small repair to the left are where was a small L shaped rip, its pretty much. And just looks like a leather crease, otherwise its perfect for the age and period.
