Full Description
A very beautiful and original William and Mary solid oak stool, original frame, with well turned legs over flattened bun feet and co-joined by beautiful curved and carved cross stretcher.

Made by a skilled hand, peg jointed throughout and dating from c.1690.

The deeply padded seat has been professionally re-upholstered in a high quality thick velvet with a beautiful pomegranate and madder leaf pattern - a William Morris design for which he took inspiration from 17th century and earlier tapestries and furnishings. The upholstery finished with a trim of bead and pomegranate tassels all very much in keeping with fashionable fabrics of the William and Mary period.

The stool is heavy and structurally sound throughout with no later elements and the oak has developed an excellent rich colour.

An eye catching and high quality late 17th century stool of good proportion and beautiful design, robust enough for daily use.
