Pair of Antique Stools
Pair of four legged jointed wooden antique stools with cabriole legs and carved decoration. This pair of stools has faded and worn paint and what is sometimes described as shabby chic. Regardless of the description, these two stools have a charm about them, they are worn enough to have achieved a good decorative look without being over worn. In addition they have some very interesting construction, underneath they are properly jointed for strength and the rails underneath have been finished with a curved chisel to give the impression that they are from the 17th century. This is sometimes called rustication, although that is most commonly applied to rusticated stonework. The webbing is in good order, but as usual the fabric needs to be changed.

Howard and Sons of London footstool
Increasingly rare footstool made by Howard and Sons of London. This footstool is at the right height for feet but is also useful for perching on at a drinks do. The upholstery is sprung horsehair with the siege de duvet system and with the edges stitched horsehair very much like a Georgian piece just like the chairs and sofas! These are available but very rare with turned or 'special' legs and sometimes with concave front for use with a Howard Club. Please enquire for current stock.
