This tall, slender joined stool attests to the durability of the form. Although its legs have been affected by water, it is a strong and sturdy survivor. The apron was constructed of riven oak boards, which were then decorated with a moulding plane and a series of round punches. The chamfered top, probably an old replacement, is braced underneath with a short oak batten. There is some loss to the lower blocks that join the bottom rails, but the mortice and tenon joints have held. The chair is safe for seating, and its wear gives testimony to its age.

English, ca. 1660

Top: 17 ½” X 11 ¼”; Height: 21 ½”
