Please note the delivery fee listed is just a guide, for an accurate quote please send me your postcode and I’ll price it up for you

There is around 50-100 high definition super-sized pictures at the bottom of this page

What can I say, if you’re in the market for the best Victorian Chesterfield sofas in the world there are a few names that are at the top of the list, Howard & Sons, Jas Shoolbred and Cornelius V Smith, here we have a fully stamped C.V.S on the inside of the back left leg for Cornelius V Smith Chesterfield sofa


The condition is fabulous for the age, genuinely 10/10, it has the original horse hair filling, the base platform is a coil sprung affair with a central beam found on again only the finest models, the front edge which is sprung has been opened check and then sealed by a Victorian upholstery trained professional, the leather has then been sympathetically recoloured to this stunning whisky brown leather colour, again the work has been carried out using traditional methods 

I have included a picture of me pressing down on the front panel with my fist, this is to demonstrate that the front panel is sprung as apposed to having a solid piece of timber, these sprung front edges are simply put only found the most luxury period original Chesterfields, its exceptionally expensive and complicated to construct this kind of platform and is pretty much the only way these sofas are comfortable
