Mahogany Neoclassical Armchair or Lolling Chair Attributed to Duncan Phyfe

About

A bowed crest rail which is shaped and molded is followed by shaped styles all of which are restrained and tastefully executed. The embellishment is reserved for the arm supports which are importantly developed and carved which set the standard for this chair, circa 1825. The legs on this example are turned in a traditional Sheraton manner which probably was the selection of the customer as this appears to be the major departure in related examples. See Nancy McClelland’s Duncan Phyfe and The English Regency, Page 251, Plate 238. This related chair was made by Phyfe for Mr. Astor who was a neighbor and regular customer. Yet another chair of this form, again varying in the front leg execution, is illustrated in American Furniture of the 19th century by Celia Jackson Otto, Ill. 215, which is currently at the Henry Ford Museum. Of interest are the superb casters on this chair which are stamped Thorpe, a company which the Phyfe workshop was known to have used.
