This is one of four known identical square-back armchairs, probably made as a set. The overall design is derived from engravings by the English furniture designers Thomas Sheraton and George Hepplewhite, but the carved and turned legs are typical of Philadelphia craftsmanship. When acquired, this chair retained its original red morocco leather upholstery, which has since been removed but is still preserved in the collection.
