Sold for £700
A Charles I oak joint stool, circa 1620, the solid seat with moulded edge above a carved and incised frieze, on square section and turned legs joined by peripheral stretchers, 54cm high, 44cm wide, 28cm deep
For a closely related stool see Victor Chinnery, Oak Furniture, The British Tradition, Antique Collectors Club 1979, page 267, fig 3:98
Marks, scratches and abrasions comensurate with age and use
some old chips and splits
The seat has a slightly cleaned appearance, but appears original. There is no clear evidence to suggest otherwise.
Possible evidence of varnish or residue of wax that has partially bloomed.
Some minor old losses from old worm damage
Two of the peg/ dowel joints seuring one of the lower stretchers appear to have been re-done with slightly larger pegs that the originals.
Evidence that atleast one leg has been cut from the base of its foot in order to 'square up' the feet and the stool overall where old loss has occurred.
