Classical Mahogany Settee, Brass Inlay, Dolphin Feet, Philadelphia, 1825

About

This settee is an absolute knockout. It is a tour de force of the classical motifs of the day, hand-carved and fully embellished. Starting from the top, note the beautiful carved scrollwork cresting a panel of crotch mahogany encased in brass and rosewood borders. The flanking cornucopia are beautifully expressed with fruit flowing over almost reminiscent of the Salem McIntyre school. The arms are wide scrolled of a mahogany that has an old historic surface underlying a current French polishing. Acanthus carving is fully developed and the apron over each leg has a beautiful original classical mount. The legs are to die for with the most expressive brass dolphin head casters. This piece is completely original and not a reduced version of a long sofa. It is one of the finest we have handled.
