Workshop of Duncan Phyfe (Attr) Grecian Taste Sofa
Item Details
Description
Rare recamier or Grecian taste sofa attributed to the workshop of Duncan Phyfe, New York City, ca. 1805, with brass-nailed black horsehair upholstery within mahogany reeded frame and scrolling reeded arms (maple secondary wood support rails), the seat rail with ribbon-bound sheaves of wheat and drapery festoons in low relief, the head with curving armrest, the foot with oval bolster with exceptionally well-carved rosette facing, the whole above splayed "cornucopia" legs on parcel gilt hairy paw feet with brass casters. 33" H x 90" L x 27" D x 16" seat Provenance: Property from an American Collection at 1040 Park Avenue Note: The offered lot bears comparison to a recamier with similar carving in the collection of George and Linda Kauffman, illustrated in Michael Flanagan, "American Furniture from the Kaufman Collection", fig. 58. It is also comparable to an example currently in the American trade. All three sofas are united by their unique proportions as well as the uncommonly large, varied, and well-carved rosettes at the foot of the sofa, which may be by the same hand.
