A good size Howard and Sons sofa at Reeman Dansie, Colchester, Essex on the 3rd of August.

It looks to be fairly original, it has obviously had a later loose cover but the underneath fabric is probably original, possibly an old Morris & Co print. That does mean it probably needs a fairly substantial overhaul.

The estimate is £300-£500 which is a bit of a joke really. My guess would be £2500-£3000. Shame it is not a model with feather cushions as at that size it would have really flown. Even so Howard sofas of this size do not come up often it still has the potential to raise big money.

Sold for £4,700 + the usual commission and tax. I felt my estimate may be a little light on this one considering the size of it but I thought the lack of siege de duvet cushions may put people off after all that is what you are generally buying a Howard for.
