Due to the larger size, this item requires freight service. White glove service, fully insured, FOB Shreveport, delivered and placed inside your home (first floor only). Typically 5-7 weeks, depending on your location.
Please note this longer time period for white glove service; no refunds will be given because of the length of delivery time.
Good condition for its age, with normal signs of age, use, dings, scratches and imperfections, including chips to the feet, carvings, old repair to the crown trim.
The white upholstery is in good used condition, and could easily be used as presented. No rips or tears, just signs of mild wear; springs are sturdy and strong and suitable for use.
I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as an integral part of the description and I encourage you to email with any questions prior to making a purchase. Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina…NOT for like-new condition!
