The rocker does not have any casters and instead bears elegantly curved sleigh legs. They were both stuffed with a mixture of straw and cotton fluff, common upholstery fluffing during that time period. The settee measures 40" high, 52" wide, 30" deep with a seat height of 20". The rocker sits on a pair of heavy-gauge springs, which are excellent condition.

The settee has a deep mustard yellow back panel of velvet with the same pale gold trim. This set is in very good to good condition.
