Additional Information: Cornelius Briggs cabinet maker, worked at 578 Washington
Street, Boston; lived at 2 Temple Place. This sofa is certainly exuberant, even lively.
The maker successfully combined a vocabulary of decorative elements. This
composition is closely related to a Sofa attributed to Isaac Vose and Son of Boston, see
figure 1, Rather Elegant Than Showy / The Classical Furniture of Isaac Vose by Robert
Mussey Jr. & Clark Pearce. Our sofa displays striking additional ornamentation such as
the robustly gadrooned front rail and the similarly gadrooned and scrolled back rail
featuring a cornucopia of fruits, exceptional carved legs, and feet.

Sheraton Wing Chair
New Hampshire

The already successful lines will be greatly improved by a competent upholster. (Height: 49"; seat height: 17"; width: 32.5"; depth: 32".)
