Couch c.1900 with twisted cross backrest at QAG

A bequest in 1972 from the estate of Blanche Louisa Battner, Brisbane Australia - A cane and timber couch in the style of George Hepplewhite U.K. 1727–1786. In the local clock collecting fraternity there is a term used here that I would also use for this object - "I'd certainly give this house room" . . . wouldn't you?
