Here is a very good quality antique French Duchess walnut footstool, in the Carolean style, circa 1870, which has been newly upholstered. A stool of this quality and size would most likely have been used in a French country house. The stool benefits from a lovely serpentine frame. It has been newly upholstered in top quality hard wearing structured wool and cotton stripped fabric, in pale gold and cream colours, finished with matching braiding. The seat itself is firmly sprung and is very comfortable to sit on or rest your feet. The underside has been with traditional hessian material. The stool stands on four ring-turned tapering legs, with pretty melon carved shoulders, which are connected by a ring turned “H” stretcher for added strength and elegance. The legs terminate on elegant bun feet. The design of the stools’ legs and stretchers are mirror matched on either side.
