Remarkably stable in construction, the rails attach to the uprights through bored holes. Chairs of this form were some of the earliest imported to and made in New England. The Colonial Revival movement and interest in Gothic history in the late 19th and early 20th c. induced a fashion for bench-made versions of Turner's chairs.A similar chair is photographed in the drawing room of the Knight D.
