FRENCH PROVINCIAL CARVED FRUITWOOD FOOT STOOL
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
