A Tynietoy Hepplewhyte Settee
This Hepplewhyte settee is slightly different than most I have seen. Georg LeClerc worked at the Tynietoy Company and eventually became the foreman of the company. I saw exhibits of his work back in the 1970’s when it was on view near Providence, R.I. I believe this is one of those pieces that he slightly changed by putting the trim work on the seat slightly higher and adding fabric to the seat. He also added dowels underneath the sofa too. It gives a very nice appearance overall to the settee.
Measurements: 3-3/4”h. x 4-7/8”w.
