Oak Charles ll Joint Stool Circa 1670 . The definition of a joint stool is quite simple really " A low wooden stool having turned legs with all parts joined by a mortise joint . " in reality it is so much more and extremely important in provincial areas this stunning piece has a oval-moulded edged top with flatterned arch-shaped top rails .
The top rails with a central run-moulding which is beautifully shaped connect through columnar turned legs joined around the base by a plain stretcher. On one side the top rail has the makers mark .
The makers mark is carved just above the central run-moulding and to me looks like WP .
Size : Height 23 inchs x Width 20 Inchs x Depth 11.5 Inchs .
