Construction

The use of separate wooden blocks tenoned into each side of the skirt as a means of attaching the top to the base, along with rosehead nails, appears to be a type of construction peculiar to Rhode Island. The collars at the top of the legs are also suggestive of Rhode Island workmanship. Source: Carol C. Sanderson and Christopher P. Monkhouse, Americana from the Daphne Farago Collection (Providence: Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, 1985), 39.
