An exceptional matched pair of early 20th century Regency style mahogany Curule tabourets or stools. The stools feature reeded crossed legs and seat frames with connecting stretchers. They have been recently upholstered in a Scalamandre animal print tapestry and are in excellent condition.
The curule seat originated in Etruria and even earlier during the time of the Egyptian Pharaohs. Recognized as a earlier form of a throne, only kings and royalty were allowed the honor of sitting in these crossed legged seats. Originally, they were made to fold, thus making them transportable in the field or as campaign furniture during battle encampments. Over the years, the curule shape has maintained its popularity in the design of finer home furnishings although most of the frames are now stationary and do not fold.
They are both structurally sound, with no breaks to the legs.
Size: 20 ½" Height by 20 ½" Length by 14" Depth.
