A Fine and Rare Charles I Oak “Long” Stool
Being of a most unusual size – either a short bench or double-sized stool. The single-board top above side rails, all of which are decorated with carved and punch-decorated gadrooning. The front rail opens to reveal a concealed side hung drawer. The well-turned “sausage and reel” legs, which retain the original “toes”, are joined by square section stretchers.
Good colour, surface and originality.
English, circa 1630.
Length 36 inches, depth 13 inches, height 24 inches.
