The octagonal shaped back rest, delicately ornate with neoclassical carving in relief of scrolling ribbons, is uniquely supported by a lower rail of two carved volutes with fluted detail. Bowed, upholstered arm rests atop curved arm supports having shallow foliate carving compliment the bow-formed seat with decorated skirt of masked figure flanked by swag of flower buds in bloom ending in classical ribbon motif. Form is supported by four turned and carved vertical legs representative of Thomas Sheraton’s designs with layered carvings in relief.
