Description

Fine and rare English early 18th century walnut stool, George I, ca 1720.

Upholstered in 17th century tapestry and partially close-nailed. This antique stool retains most of the original parcel gilding to the acanthus carved knees. Blocks and rails are original.

Of excellent proportions and with a strong frame.

Nb.
Parcel gilding essentially means partly gilded areas of carved surfaces.
It is unusual to have gilded acanthus carving continuing so far down the legs, indicative of rarity, and of an early period.

The pair to this stool is in the Great Chamber, Chatsworth, Derbyshire. See illustration Ralph Edwards CBE, FSA ’The Shorter Dictionary of English Furniture’, Hamlyn Publ, London, Fourth Impression 1972, p.13.
