Mahogany Chippendale style corner chair in the Philadelphia mode, hand made by Sypher & Co., 1883, 739 and 741 Bway N.Y. City #107. Dimensions are 39 and one eighth x 25.25 x 25.25 inches. New York, at the turn of the century, had fine cabinetmakers, such as Hagen and Company that built fine copies of Phyfe’s furniture, whose tools, etc. he purchased and added to Phyfe’s already legendary pieces; another was Sypher & Co. This corner chair is branded (see below) and has claw and ball feet in addition to carved shells on the seat frame, acanthus carving on the legs and, if this were not enough, carved splats and reeded arm supports. Excellent original condition. The identical twin to this chair was purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1994 for their permanent collection.
