Oak joint stool

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

An engaging joint stool with cup-and-cover turnings on its legs, a series of raised bosses on its apron, and highly figured oak in its top.

Bosses like these were commonly applied to Jacobean case pieces, but in those instances, they were formed from spindles – often ebony – which were split in half and applied to the surface. The bosses in this stool appear, rather, to have been formed by removing the surrounding wood from the rails – a procedure too difficult and time-consuming to have been employed during the earlier period.

The seat is made of a single board, which is highly figured and quite striking.

English, ca. 1890

Seat: 17 ½” X 10”; Height: 17 ½”
