This is one of only two fully upholstered cabriole-leg Massachusetts settees that are known today. It belongs to a small group of Boston furniture characterized by asymmetrically arranged C-scrolls and knee carving in foliage patterns. The flared wings and bow-shaped back are supreme manifestations of New England Rococo design.
