Early Oak Joint Stool
A Charles I (1625 - 1649) oak joint (or joynt) stool. Baluster turned legs united by well worn stretchers. Twin plank top with moulded edge above a channel moulded frieze. Age related old splits to legs, however the whole is stable and no movement associated with the splitting. Some would say this adds to its character. Wonderful colour. Although it’s a small piece it has a rather impressive and commanding presence. Just think of all the people that have used this in its 370+ year history! Equally useful as a stool or side table.
