Antique Empire Rosewood Piano Swivel Stool

Lovely piano, organ, or vanity stool in a highly sculptural rosewood veneer, upholstered with a raised red velvet on creamy white background. The chair swivels up and down by a heavy iron turn-screw mechanism. Empire or Biedermeier influenced design, it is well made and has been well taken care of. I assume the fabric seat was replaced sometime in it's past but I can see no problems in the upholstery or the wood finish. There are a few pieces of veneer missing near the bottom edge of the feet. It only shows normal age wear. As you can see from the photo the seat section does come off of the pedestal-the mechanism still works fine and I'm not sure if that's the way it has always been or if it needs a repair. In the 1800's Rosewood or Palisander was only reserved for the finest pieces of furniture!

Item ID: F005

This is a heavy stool but is still small enough to be packed well into a box. I recently sent a much larger box with a chair to middle US for around $75. Please email if you desire any shipping quotes or have any question. Insurance/tracking included.
