This easy chair, popularly called a wing chair, exhibits features of Philadelphia manufacture.  They include the front cabriole legs ending in trifid feet, the type of shells carved on the knees, rounded rear "stump" legs, and arm scrolls that end in a C-shaped face.  The chair appears to survive in reasonably good condition, although the frame was not examined underneath the upholstery.
