A Classical Footstool

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Circa 1825

This diminutive footstool is profusely carved in a manner reminiscent of the work of the cabinetmaker Joseph Barry. The front and back rails are beautifully carved with paired acanthus leaves. While the ends are joined by delicate turnings, the stool’s stiles are finished with carved bird heads and animal paw feet. The seat frame is upholstered in a Scalamandre harateen. 

Height: 10 ⅛” Width: 18 ½” Depth: 9 ¾”
