DescriptionIn the English William and Mary style of the late 17th century, this table reproduces an archaic form that was retained for years in rural New England. Quebec examples usually originate from the Eastern Townships and are indicative of the shared cultural and ethnic ties between that region and Vermont and New Hampshire.
