Alfred Dunhill 'Sofa', 1950s

An extremely scarce, (most probably unique) desk compendium in the form of a miniature two-seater sofa, entirely covered in dark cognac-coloured crocodile hide, the sofa of hardwood construction has seat pads, arms and a seat back with hinged lids, which lift to reveal moiré silk-lined compartments for cigarettes, cigarillos and/or gaming requisites. The seat cushions lift to reveal two sets of period Dunhill playing cards, and the front section of the sofa features a deep, concealed pull-out drawer, which is fitted for a matching crocodile wrapped Dunhill ‘Giant’ table lighter. The sofa sits on a polished chrome angular plinth, and the arms are edged with a similar trim. The black leather covered base is stamped DUNHILL in gold. English, circa 1950.

Height of seat back: 6 inches (15 cm)
Depth front to back: 6 inches (15 cm)
Width of sofa overall: 11 inches (28 cm).
