A Turned, Over-Upholstered Walnut Stool, Continental, probably French, early 18th century

Scroll down for 5 more photos

This stool is desirable as all elements are beautifully turned with a central stretcher instead of the usual box stretcher configuration, making this a much more appealing, literally less boxy model.  (Functionally, the stretcher also doesn’t get in the way of foot placement.)

We have reupholstered this footstool and the structure underneath shows its originality and age.  This is a very well preserved example with a well preserved surface.

Height: 19 1/4 in.  Depth: 16 1/4 in.
Width: 19 1/2 in.
