his is called a "retiring" suite - the sort women would be sent to sit on in the drawing room whilst men played billiards and smoked cigars. It consists of a very elegant bench and two arm chairs, and has been in my guest bedroom since I bought it from a dealer about 2 years ago, with the settle at the foot of the bed and the chairs either side. This set would also make lovely hallway seating. It's mahogany framed, with a deep mustard-gold velvet upholstery and braid. The set is in excellent condition. I don't think it's original, but I could be mistaken; however the quality is lovely and this could either make a lovely addition as a vintage piece . It must be sold so someone will get a delightful bargain with this set!
