This settee and its mate are the only known fully upholstered Massachusetts settees with carved cabriole legs. They are part of a small group of pieces of Boston Rococo furniture with asymmetrical C-scroll and foliate knee carving. The carved motif was apparently adapted directly from a set of English chairs that were owned by one William Phillips in Boston in the eighteenth century.
