Authentic John Henry Belter Fine Rosewood Laminated Sofa Settee Love Seat. In the Very Desirable and Classic Belter Pattern, “Rosalie with Grapes”. Two Matching Throw Pillows, Not Shown in Photos, Accompany the Sofa. The Back and Side Panels Have Beautifully Tufted Details. The Carvings are Exquisite & Undeniably Belter with Deep Figuring and Curves. No Other Furniture Maker Who Tried (and Many Did) Could Come Close to Copying Belter’s Intricately Thin and Artistic Lines! This Treasure Measures Approximately 41″ High x 75″ Long x 20 Deep. Overall, for its age and use, this is a fine and rare piece. There are a few details that I will point out here and in the photos for accuracy. The upholstery has a tear on the left side panel not visible from the front, but shown in the photos for accuracy. The left front foot has been broken and has an old repair which could EASILY be re-glued more exactly and then paste waxed to look near perfect. I will leave that to the new owner. I have photographed this under EXTREME MAGNIFICATION, however, this old break does not render the settee any less sturdy or detract from its elegance. The back of the settee has a small chip and a small missing piece of laminate as shown in the EXTREMELY MAGNIFIED PHOTOS. This is not visible from the front and could be easily filled in with wood and/or a dark paste wax if you desire. There are some scratches, etc. Here and there commensurate with age and use, but here again, nothing that a little paste wax will not cover beautifully! The “Rosalie” Pattern was so coined by J. To date, this exclusive pattern still occupies the two front parlors or drawing rooms in this historic Greek Revival Natchez landmark. Illustrations of all Belter’s “Rosalie” pieces can be seen in Lucianne Wood and Sarah Webster’s Book entitled, Rosalie, A Mansion of Natchez. By Schwartz, Stanek and True.
