Sack catalogue description: Important Classical mahogany recamiér sofa with rose and floral carving in star-punched background, Grecian key frieze pattern on seat frame, crisp carving. The crispness of the carving and the familiar motifs on accredited McIntire pieces justify this attribution; now in Henry Ford Museum. Few Salem Classical chaises longues sofas are known; a related example with turned legs is in the Cluett Collection.
