A superb George I carved walnut & needlework foot stool, retaining excellent colour and patina. The stool has four delightfully and crisply carved cabriole legs the scrolling hips carved in the manner of an opening flower, with a carved acanthus leaf to the knee with trailing inter-twined ribbons below, with a carved scrolling edge terminating in a pad foot.

The legs support an over-stuffed stool, which is covered with an 18th century needlework and held in place by brass closing nailing around the periphery.

A particularly fine piece, of note is the most unusual form to the top of the legs and the excellent carved detailing throughout.
Excellent. Minor old restorations, waxing. The needlework is most likely a later replacement, though from the same century probably some 60-70 years later.
The estate of David H. Wilson, New York.
English, George I, circa 1725
