Hi, my mother passed along this sofa to me and thought it was a Duncan Phyfe, I am wondering where to find a tag or label as I would like to sell this piece.
Thanks

Answer
Hi Ernie,


I can tell you that this is not a Duncan Phyfe Sofa but a poor interpretation of
a Duncan Phyfe sofa from his New York shop.

It is impossible to tell what furniture factory this came from in the early 20th century.

With its current fabric it is a candidate for re-upholstery putting its value at $300.-
$400..

Best Wishes,
