Description

A fine and rare English parcel-gilt walnut stool.
Early 18th century, George I period, circa 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, of very good rich colour, 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. This is indicative of its rarity and its early period.
The pair to this Georgian stool we are offering here is in the Great Chamber, Chatsworth, Derbyshire.
See the illustration in Ralph Edwards CBE FSA ’The Shorter Dictionary of English Furniture’ (Hamlyn, London, Fourth Impression 1972), p. 13.
Est. 1957
