First Floor - Keeping Room

Furniture and Hard Furnishings

Southern New England, 1810-1825. Tulip poplar, oak, maple. 35" h. x 39" w. x 14 ½" d.

Windsor Settee

The two-person settee has an eleven-spindle back between bamboo-turned posts and a three-step oak crest rail. Carved arms with bamboo-turned arm supports and single spindles set into the shield-shaped tulip poplar seat; standing on six bamboo-turned legs and box stretchers. Settee would originally have been painted, though now stripped with a clear coat. The handholds, tapered rather than rounded, are unusual and suggest that the arms may be replacements.
