Early 20thc walnut cabriole leg stool
An early 20th century walnut cabriole leg stool with a drop in seat - ADDITIONAL IMAGES CAN BE VIEWED BELOW:
This stool consists of a quadrant retaining moulding at the top with shaped seat rails veneered with straight grain walnut onto walnut.
The drop in seat is covered in a pale yellow fabric but this could easily be changed to a fabric of your choice.
The front & back rails both have a central carved scroll scallop shell motif, supported by four finely carved cabriole legs with a carved scallop shell decoration on the knees with c-scroll brackets and terminate with ball & claw feet.
This piece has the patina (colour) of a period walnut piece of furniture of about 1710 & this, therefore makes it a good example of its type.
This piece takes influences from both Queen Anne & George II, the ball & claw feet being from the latter & making it an elegant piece.
Items such as this were made by very fine cabinet makers of their day such as Frederick Tibbenham of Ipswich in Suffolk in the late 19thc/early 20thc.
This stool is in very good condition and can go straight into a home.
