Supporting the single-board oak top with thumbnail-moulding perimeter is a handsomely carved base. The stretchers that make up the stool’s apron are each decorated with small relief carvings, each contained in a simple square frame. Each of the long sides contains four of these, the short sides, two. The four legs that connect the apron stretchers consist of a simple rectangular block at top and bottom, between which turner and carver combined their skills to create fluted columns with a handsome turning at the blocks. Unadorned stretchers connect the legs near to the floor.

Because of their compact, joined construction, these little stools are nearly immune to structural weakness. This stool is, indeed, strong, stable, and secure. It has excellent color, enhanced by a light coating of bee’s wax.

English, ca. 1880

Dimensions: 18” X 10 ¾”; Height: 18”
