The gold velvet chair and sofa are Sonia Messer pieces from the 1970's. It was part of a collection called the Queen Anne English Deluxe Living Room. All of the pieces were carved from walnut and were manufactured in Columbia.
As you may have noticed, the sofa is missing a few pieces. After studying the chair for a while, I realized that it had all of the pieces that I needed for the sofa.
Several years ago I came across both of these Sonia Messer pieces. The trunk and the serving tray are both 1"=1'-0" scale and as with all Messer pieces, they are made from Mahogany
This photo shows the tags on the bottom of the tray and trunk
These are two other pieces of Sonia Messer furniture that I have in my collection.
They are in the Garbe house which you can see by clicking HERE
So I began the project. I am carefully removing the arms and legs from the chair and I am going to reproduce them. I have been reading up on making molds to reproduce small objects. Once they are duplicated, I will re-assemble the chair.
A dry fit of the arm and support on the sofa were a near perfect fit!
These are the pieces that I removed from the chair that I will need to duplicate.
The left and right arm and support. I will need 3 of the carved claw foot legs, and just one of the tall back legs.
Wish me luck!
