A Napoleon III parcel-gilt rope-twist stool , ‘Pouf à Cordes’.

The giltwork and carving are excellent in this example, the 'open' rope knots show the high level of skilled craftsmanship, carefully carved and water gilt though out. The stool retains its original casters.
The model for this stool was created by the upholsterer A. M. E. Fournier who worked in the boulevard Beaumarchais, Paris, from 1850 onwards.
A chair of similar design is exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum, New York
