Once believed that this armchair was made in Essex County, Massachusetts, now it is considered among the earliest works from Windsor, Connecticut. Its carved decoration, much of it done with a gouge, relates it to objects attributed to an unidentified craftsman from that area. With spindles rather than panels on the back, the chair combines elements of both a joined and a turned chair.
