This fine carved work is simply a visual delight! It has a finely carved frame, somewhat half-moon in overall form, carefully molded around the entirety of it. It is carved flawlessly at the center with a wonderful motif, each corner is decorated with carved square rosettes and a repeating carved motif along the bottom. The stool rests over four ring-turned tapered and fluted legs with round ball feet. It has a stunning painted surface, carefully worn with years of life into a very fine patina. The wood shows through, the original paint visible throughout and the entire surface with a light wax.
This is an absolute treasure that will bring completion to your seating. It is quite unique and a difficult find, something you will truly enjoy once fully restored.
Measurements: 24 1/8" deep x 28" wide x 17 1/2" high (without the cushion)
