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. ----- Bibliography: Book: American Antiques from Israel Sack Collection, 10 vols. (Washington, D.C.: Highland House Publishers, 1957–1990), vol. 2, p. 417, pl. 1053.
