European sofa, from the late 1800s, covered with an exquisite Persian carpet, floral design,
in excellent shape.

You can take off the back easily, even one or both side arms, and create a classic divan.

Apparently, this piece was loved and treated with great respect.
In Iran and many other carpet conscious countries, people take off their shoes
when they enter a house.

I most likely would look for such a rare piece in a museum.
However, it is now sitting in my living room as a comfortable
welcoming centerpiece that everyone loves.
As I am downsizing, it's now available.

A unique piece of Victorian furniture, this is a wonderfully eye-catching
and unusual sofa in greens and reds.

Some wear as this has been well-loved. Only the bottom fringe needs a little stitching.
Otherwise, it’s in good shape for its age.

This piece, like all our antiques or works of art, comes from a non-smoking, cat-free house.

Approx. Measurements:

Length 62”
Height 37 1/2"
Depth 28”

Now only $1,400.

CASH ONLY. No checks, money orders, plastic, PayPal, etc.

I am downsizing and selling everything way below market value.
We are not dealers; that's why our prices are so good.

Feel free to send me a list of any other items you would like to see so that
I can have them ready for you when you come to look at the items, saving time.

We attach photos of all items and list any major shortcomings,
except regular wear and tear on vintage and antique items.
Please inspect everything as we don't offer returns on items bought.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

IMPORTANT NOTE: As our home is a private residence, not a store--
for your security and ours--we request that our customers send us
their telephone number so that we can call and share our address with you.
We only give out our address over the phone. We hope you'll understand.

Once you visit our large, beautiful home, sitting on a quiet street
with plenty of parking off West Chester Pike (Rt. 3, near Rt. 1)
and Keystone Ave., and public transport nearby,

I'd be happy to show you many more wonderful pieces
of furniture, art, antiques and gifts on 3 different floors.

Given the many people from all over the greater Philadelphia area,
PA, NJ, DE, MD, and even NY, who buy from our collection,
I do not meet somewhere, deliver, or ship.

PICK UP ONLY. I hope you'll understand.
Contact me once you're ready and able to visit.

If you wish, bring along a friend who might also like to see great bargains
or someone who would help you carry heavier items into your car or truck.

FRIENDLY WARNING: We do not deal with anyone who refuses to communicate
via the legally protected Craigslist mailing system and, instead, wants us to write
to some private email address. Every single one of those pseudo-customers
never once bought anything. Apparently, they realized that we report scammers
and their email addresses to Craigslist to stop the abuse.

We love all genuine customers and are delighted that many of them come back
and buy more of our treasures from around the world—all on sale.

Thank you for your interest. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
