Taking an upholstery class and taking off the old fabric.

Customer Question

Taking an upholstery class and taking off the old fabric. Inside the bottom edge of each of the 3 piece parlor set is old signature with wide brush strokes of old flat black looks like black- chalk-like letters 1/2 wide by about 3" tall. [ LOUIS XIVUFTFX ] The carving is very lovely of 2 love birds above a crest, detailed carving across back fronts of chair arms down legs, and across bottom front wood of seat cross members. 5.5' 3 person settee, large chair with matching arms to settee, and smaller chair without arms. all have same crest and carving. Love bird only done on settee. I think the wood is walnut, I am not an expert, just found something nice I want to learn more about.
