The table is almost identical to a card table bearing the ink stencil of Isaac Vose and Son in the collection of the Saint Louis Museum of Art. Robert Mussey and Clark Pearce, furniture historians who have closely studied the shop practices of Thomas Seymour and the Vose firm and this example, are confident in a Vose attribution.

Thomas Seymour, after closing his own shop in 1818, became the shop foreman for the firm of Vose & Son, considered then and now to be the greatest makers of Classical furniture in Boston. This elite pairing of talent produced some of the finest furniture in America of the Classical period in the Regency taste. Robert Mussey has identified a pair of Grecian card tables with pylon pedestals and scrolled feet made by Seymour for Peter Chardon Brooks in 1816 as the prototypes for a group of tables, like the Saint Louis example, made a few years later with Vose.
