Victorian sofa

I am so excited!!!! We finally found an antique Victorian sofa !!!!! I have been wanting one for years.The ones I saw were always outrages prices.Well,I found one on Craig's list for a really great price!!!! It will be reupholstered eventually but for now I am happy!!!!! It is pink!!!! I just put a faux- fur throw on the seat where the repairs are needed.The sofa is from the late 1800"s so it feels like it belongs in the house!!!! I bought batteries for camera so here are a few photos!!!

I actually think your sofa is early Victorian, ca. 1830-1850.

The mahogany and the smooth undulations give that away. The decorative carvings also suggest the impending arrival of the Rococo period, which is mid-century.
