A rare mid 18th century parcel gilt mahogany stool attributed to the Yorkshire cabinet-makers Wright and Elwick, retaining almost all the original gilding and upholstered in green silk cut and uncut velvet, having serpentine shaped seat rails carved with C-scrolls and central acanthus clasp to front and reverse; on elegant cabriole legs with acanthus clasp to the knees, terminating in acanthus carved scroll toes.

Note: This outstanding stool was once part of a suite comprising eight chairs and two settees and possibly a further stool at Wentworth Woodhouse, Yorkshire. A similar suite was at Hackwood Park, Hampshire.

The toes have been tipped to reinstate the original height and complete the scroll design.
