Thank you for your time - photos attached.

Answer
Hi Lauren,

Judging by the photo's I would say that the piece dates to the 1930's to 1940's.

Having seen a number of period Duncan Phyfe pieces, including sofa's, the detail
work on your example is not representative of the New York shop of Duncan Phyfe

In particular, the carving work on the crest rail is lacking in the precision
carving found on Phyfe examples.

Best Wishes,
