Antique Reupolstered Settee


Recommended Posts

I’m after some legal advice please. If anyone can help, I would be very grateful.... My Father has an antique Settee that had been re-upholstered probably in late 80s early 90s. It still looks great but as he has downsized it’s no longer required. 


I’ve had a look at the Legislation and have become confused as to whether he can legal sell this item? The frame is pre-1950 but the upholstery is not.


Thank you in advance for your kind assistance.

The regulations are concerned with the upholstery not the frame and although the frame may be pre 1950 the upholstery is not. If it was reupholstered in the late 80s early 90s then the who ever upholstered it is subject to the regulations and should have attached the appropriate labels  to comply with the regulations.

Consequently if it carries the appropriate labels no problem, if not, you could have problems if you try to sell it, and I think you would be outside the law.
