A Charles I Oak Joint Stool

The single board top, secured by four oak pegs into the top rails, all of which have a curved or cushion profile, and are carved with lunettes filled with stylised leaves.

The legs are finely turned, with good detail, of an inverted baluster and a baluster over a ball. They are joined around the base by stretchers with run-moulded decoration, below the stretchers the ball-turned feet have survived.

The fine quality of workmanship and very much untouched condition would suggest this stool was made for a house of status, rather than a poorer dwelling.

English, Gloucester, circa 1635-1640.

Width 18 inches, depth 10 inches, height 23.5 inches (a good height for this period of stool).

Ref 2192
