B1654 - Amazing Long Antique French Wooden Foot Stool, Hand Worked Cross Stitch Top

This is an amazing antique French upholstered stool dating from the 19th Century. It is just so long! Perhaps it came from a church. It would certainly add a superb finishing touch in a period house perhaps in front of a sofa.

It is a sturdy piece sitting on 4 sturdy feet. The base is made from a single piece of wood. It is upholstered and covered with a hand worked cross stitch textile and trimmed with passementerie.

The textile has a beige background. It's design is worked in ochre and is highlighted with flowers in lilac, lavender and red. The textile has gently faded with the passage of time and there is a little wear and a few marks but there is nothing to draw the eye. In fact, in our opinion, the 'look' is exactly what one would hope for in a textile of this age.

The wood has a few worm holes (please see photos) but this has long gone and doesn't present a problem. The passementerie has frayed a little in places.

The stool measures :- 125 cm (4 ft 1.25 inches) wide x 20 cm (8 inches) deep x 19 cm (7.5 inches) high.

A stunning and unique antique French foot stool to add an authentic château chic finishing touch and another gorgeous brocante find from La Belle Étoffe.
