A Good and Rare Early Charles II Period Oak Box Stool

The single boarded top, with moulded edge and inner double scratch lining, retaining the original lopers and loop hinges. The back and side panels are plain, whilst the front retains the original iron lockplate and hasp. Running along the bottom of the panels (to hide the end grain of the bottom boards) is a simple moulded skirt.

The short stout legs have a “sausage” turning, with a scratch mark around the middle, and continue down to integral turned toes. A substantial stretcher joins the legs on all sides.

Glorious, deep colour.

English, probably Yorkshire (suggested by the leg turnings), circa 1660.

Similar examples can be seen in “Oak Furniture, the British Tradition”, by Victor Chinnery, page 269 and 270.

Ref 2519

Width 18.25 inches, depth 15 inches, height 17 inches.
