George III 18th Century Chinese Chippendale Stool attributable to William Vile and John Cobb English Circa 1765

The recently re-covered seat drops into a mahogany frame with carved flowers to the corners standing on solid mahogany blind fret legs and perforated open fret stretchers. The brackets connecting to the chamfered legs are very much in the Chinese Chippendale chinoiserie style. The use of the guttae feet is a characteristic of the work of William Vile and John Cobb and is found on several pieces with which they are associated, notably a stool produced for the Vyne, Hampshire, in 1753, illustrated in Anthony Coleridge, Chippendale Furniture,1968, fig.28.
