There are a number of decorative and construction features on this side chair that strongly suggest an association with the shop of Eliphalet Chapin (1741-1807) of Connecticut. The through-tenoned side rails and vertical corner blocks that reinforce the inside of the seat frame are hallmarks of Chapin's construction, thought to have been learned when he lived in Philadelphia. The urn shaped splat, the stump rear legs, scrolled arm rests and shaped arm supports are decorative elements found on Chapin school armchairs, though here they are simplified with no elaborate carving, befitting the informal nature of a rush seat chair.
