  • Description
    In the manner of Duncan Phyfe (1770-1854)
    New York, c. 1815

    The scrolled crest rail with a central panel with relief-carved intertwined cornucopia issuing fruit and wheat, flanked by panels with carved "thunder bolts" in a bow knot, the reeded arms with carved rosettes continue to a reeded seat rail raised on reeded saber legs with brass paw feet on casters.

    H: 34¼" W: 90" D: 23"

    Condition: Good: restoration to p.r. front leg and p.l. seat rail above leg. Modern horsehair upholstery in the original color with conservation webbing and materials.

    This is an iconic form in New York Classical furniture in the late-Sheraton style with influences of the French Directoire, illustrated in plate 7 from The New York Book of Prices for Manufacturing Cabinet and Chair Work, 1817, and relates to many sofas documented to Duncan Phyfe, c. 1810-1815. The motifs of the carving are found on many Phyfe chairs and sofas and the quality of that carving is in every way comparable to the documented examples. The carved rosettes at the termination of the arms are a relatively rare and attractive feature.
