"A very beautiful shield-shaped Hepplewhite chair is shown in Figure 590.

"The centre design is drapery caught up at three places and a fleur-de-lis is at the top.

"The legs taper and terminate in spade feet.

"The seat is upholstered over the edge and finished with brass-headed nails." - Colonial Furniture in America, by Luke Vincent Lockwood, 1926, p. 112.
