Circa late 19th/early 20th century, with early needlepoint covering
Item # 801XJS30P 

A gorgeous little early footstool of unusually diminutive proportions, this is an interesting accent piece with such a rich old surface.  Retaining the early hand-stitched needlepoint covering surrounded by brass tacking, the fruitwood frame is carved in a provincial taste.  Distinctly influenced by the Louis XV taste, the foot stool rests over delightful little cabriole legs terminating in scrolled french toes and separated by a cupids bow serpentine in the apron.  It is a wonderful little piece that brightens the classical seating area.

Measurements:  6 1/2 H x 20 W x 8 5/8 D

Condition Report:
Light surface wear and abrasions.  Early needlepoint with discolorations, some loose threads and small holes.  Sturdy, strong and tight in all joints.
