Duncan Phyfe Federal Period Sofa

About

The Phyfe Shop's earliest (prior to 1800) Sheraton-Adam inspired, masterfully carved mahogany SIX legged sofa or 'settee'. Three panels of crest rail carvings: a central bowed swag panel, with bow tied wheat sheaves in panels to either side. In-turned curvature of reed faced side arms. The two baluster arm supports, and the four front legs, are finely reeded with a count of 22. The two rear legs are slightly raking and plain. All six legs rest on casters. Exceptional refinement of English Sheraton and Scottish Adam Brothers design and proportion; with characteristic American Federal period hand-carved motifs and detail. Secondary woods and manner of joinery substantiate attribution and dating to the first NYC shop of Duncan Phyfe, on Partition (now Fulton) Street. The six-legged 'in-turned side arm' sofa is Phyfe's earliest, rarest, and most restrained; unlike the more common, heavily carved American Classical period furniture produced by his shop decades later.
