A table with nearly identical decoration was included in a documented set made by the Finlays in 1805 for John Morris (1785–1874) of Baltimore. The painted harbor scene is attributed to Francis Guy on the basis of its resemblance to other examples of his work. Guy worked for the Finlays from 1804 to about 1810.
