Here is a well-worn antique footstool that would look right at home on your braided oval rag rug next to the fireplace. The row of nails along the edge seems to indicate that it originally had a cloth or leather covering on the top, but that was removed and the stool was then painted in a blue or light gray color. (It may have faded over time.) The paint is now almost all gone from the top, but it remains over much of the rest of the surface. The dimensions are twelve inches by eight for the top, and it is six and a half inches high. The legs are attached to the top by through tenons, or I suppose you could call them very wide dovetails. Simple cutouts. It comes from a well-curated collection of Pennsylvania antiques, and could be as early as the Chippendale period. Please check the photos.
