Exceptional carving can be found in this 19th century Louis XVI style French darling. The stool is composed of wonderfully turned and carved mahogany components, with cubic joinery dies holding them all together. All rails, with the exception of the top hand rails, have been expertly turned and carved into column forms with fluted details. This includes the stretcher found below. The hand rails have been turned in the form of smooth columns. The top is upholstered in a mustard yellow velvet that is secured to the base with brass nail heads. The stool rests on lovely turned feet. c.1880.
