A late 19th century Liberty & Co. inlaid coffee stool of octagonal shape in excellent original condition.

Liberty & Co developed decorating rooms in an 'oriental' style in the 1880's & exhibited various items with styles from Exotic countries.

The top of this stool has inlaid decoration of mother of pearl & various exotic woods to create a geometric design.

In the centre of the design are inlaid wood designs of Islamic religious symbols.

Each side panel has a geometric design, again with mother of pearl & exotic woods & underneath is an inlaid wood design.

In between each of these sections is a broken black & light wood line design.

The legs form an arch between each section & give the table an architectural influence from the East.

The first Liberty catalogue known to exist was produced in 1881 & this celebrated Oriental items & also set the fashion for the store for years & years.

The Middle classes particularly were fascinated with the designs & quality of these exotic items.

Examples of these stools from Liberty & Co. can be seen in the book: 'Liberty's Furniture 1875-1915, The Birth of Modern Interior Design' by Daryl Bennett, pages 28,29,30 etc.

This stool/table is of excellent condition and can go straight into a home.
