This a front view of the old couch. My stepfather was in the military & we were stationed in Germany. My mother bought this couch from a German couple and she only paid ( I know you won't believe it but she really did ) $ 12. 50 for it & brought it home on a Volkswagon !! It comes apart , the back lifts off . She brought it home in 2 pieces. Everybody thought it was a hoot ,seeing this big old couch on top of a VW. The old man said he made it when he first got married , he was selling it for hospital money he needed .
