This is a fabulous example of an early, ‘Knole’ settee, and it is exceedingly rare to find such a large piece upholstered in 17th century verdure tapestry upholstery, particularly in such fine condition. In the mid-19th century, upholstered settees with high backs and adjustable sides were made for large country houses. These settees were named after a couch at Knole in Kent, the ancestral seat of the Sackvilles, which is thought to date from the first quarter of the 17th century. The original couch has a painted beech frame, and served the dual purpose of bed and settee, and is one of the earliest examples of English, upholstered, seat furniture. Even though it is named after the 17th century settee at Knole, the 19th century, Knole settee has a very different form as it was designed purely for comfortable, draught free, seating
