A solid wood mahogany coach in French Rococo style (Louis XVI) from circa late 19th Century

What I believe is a mahogany couch that’s been in my family for over 50 years. It was damaged in Ian when the storage locker it was stored in flooded. I live in California the couch was in Florida I was with it for only a few hours when I attempted to bring it to my home. The couch was well wrapped in its storage room, on it’s tail, but the water found its way in.

Description and history of

This is a solid wood mahogany coach in French Rococo style (Louis XVI) from circa late 19th Century.


This is a circa late 19th Century Victorian era coach. We can see from the carvings that they were hand made, they are irregular. But the carvings are very well done, and the couch itself is made in a modern way. As a result, I believe it was made during the Victorian era (late 19th century).


The provenance of this couch is clearly Europe. I think the south of France is probably the origin of this couch.


The age of the couch is circa 19th Century (1860-1900). It matches the Victorian era.


The style is Louis XVI. The Louis XVI style couch is a furniture piece that was popular in France during the late 1700s. The couch is characterized by its straight lines, simple silhouette, and slender legs. The style is named after King Louis XVI, who reigned during the latter part of the Rococo period. The Rococo style is known for its ornate decorations and opulent materials, and the Louis XVI style couch reflects this aesthetic. The couch is typically upholstered in luxurious fabrics such as velvet or silk, and it often features tufting or embroidery. In addition to being a sofa, the Louis XVI style couch can also be used as a daybed or chaise lounge. Today, the couch is a popular choice for those who want to add a touch of elegance to their home.

How to sell it

Antiques, art, and other collectibles are difficult items to sell online. Selling can take a lot of time. Be patient, but also make sure that the price you are asking for is the right one for your pieces of art. Consider the following tips on how to sell antiques and collectibles online: These tips will help maximize the price of your antique or collectible.

I would recommend selling it online. There are many ways to do this. For instance, Post an ad on Craigslist. Use eBay to sell antiques online. Post a listing on the Etsy marketplace. Sell with direct messages using Instagram. You can create a website using Squarespace or WordPress. Use Shopify to sell via a website, POS and social channels. List your items on, Facebook Marketplaces, or Amazon Marketplaces. If you don’t have time, I would recommend starting with Facebook, Etsy, and Amazon.

The key to selling antiques online is to let potential customers know that you know what you are talking about. It’s much more difficult to sell something when the potential buyer can’t be sure it’s authentic. Sellers should use a well thought out descriptive guide like this one. A good lead generation service should be helpful in establishing these relationships with online buyers, and an effective way to do this is through classified ads. If a buyer asks for more information, giving them some valuable facts well ahead of time will get you more sales because your reputation will increase and real customers are the ones who ask for more details.

In order to sell your antiques online, you will need to create a profile on the relevant forum (Etsy, Amazon, and FB). Make sure you add a high-resolution image of the product (include at least 3 detailed photos) and add some text. The text should be informative and straight to the point; nothing fancy or fluffy.

Asking price is a big factor in selling your antique. If your asking price is too high (fancy company stickers, missing parts, or chipped paint), you are unlikely to get many bids. If the asking price is too low, it will cost you money for repairs, shipping, and insurance. As a general rule, I would recommend setting an asking price that is 80% of the value of this report, so you will make the listing attractive from the beginning.

About the valuation method

This is a detailed report of the value of your piece. To determine the value, the appraiser has considered the results from past auction sales. Keep in mind that the final price can be different from the asking price that you can find on the internet. You can see ads on the internet with different asking prices. However, a very high asking price doesn’t normally find cash from a buyer.

That’s why our method comprises searching and comparing similar past sale results that had a buyer. That’s why we can provide an accurate estimation of this item.

To get an accurate valuation of your antique piece, I considered the following: description, condition, and possible precious metal content. History, age, provenance, and the importance it has played in history are also considered. A crucial interest is a collector’s willingness to buy this piece. While some antiques are really collectible, others are really difficult to sell, and hence their value decreases.

Antiques can be a good investment. A piece’s year of manufacture, condition, rarity, and history can all influence an antique’s value.Antiques, when bought wisely and carefully, can provide many good years, even decades, of enjoyment before their value appreciates significantly. Antique furniture, paintings, prints, and maps are not only useful works of art but also tangible assets. Their value in the market increases every year, making them great long-term investments for people who want to diversify their assets.
