This is the famous model that Phyfe produced in the Classical style.  A full set is on exhibit in the Metropolitan museum and in a number of other museums showing the quintessential classical form. The inlays above the hairy paw are a figured tiger mahogany which is slightly different than the usual figured mahogany.

This chair is in perfect condition with no breaks or alterations and is the best of the form.
