Fine Berlin Needlework Stools

An extremely rare pair of exhibition quality walnut cabriole leg stools
each bearing its original cover.

The style of the stools, the complexity of the needlework and the inclusion of glistening cut steel and glass beads indicates the period of
The Great Exhibition of 1862;
by, and retaining the label of, the noted cabinet makers F. Danby of Leeds.
Francis Danby ran a business from Upper Head Row (now The Headrow), which also made the seats and fittings for the Council Chambers in Leeds Town Hall. According to the 1871 census Francis employed 14 men and 2 boys.
They are in incredible condition, usually the steel thread has corroded in examples of this work. We believe these stools are unique in their state of preservation and are a must for any serious collector of antique furniture or needlework.
