What a find, I have never seen another and to be honest, Iím not sure one exists. It is circa 1740 as mentioned and finished with the original gilding, hand carved to the back rest with Lionís heads and mains, the feet are lions hair paw, this piece visually is to die for
It is by modern standards very low to the ground so more of a bench or stool size, we can add Victorian porcelain castors for the cost price should the new owner wish to raise the height, it would add around 5cm. The upholstery looks to be late 19th century and in good period order
Condition wise were have removed the base cover and checked inside, some of the webbing has been restored and a new hessian base cover fitted. The gilding is nicely aged and original
