A beautiful example of wood inlay from an old chesterfield that was being given away on Kijiji.  The owners, an older German couple, were desperate for a new home for it, as otherwise they would have to take it to the dump.  The ad had over 300 visits, but we were the only ones who actually showed up to take it.  The upholstery wasn't even in bad condition!  I amazed that so few people today seem to appreciate such craftsmanship, but it also works for me since I got the couch!  (The owners were also so thrilled by our enthusiasm for the piece, that they gave us a lovely china cabinet, several chairs and a coffee table as well!)
