Hand-carved in the 1800’s in France, this walnut wood tabouret has Louis XIV style motifs. The stool has been professionally reupholstered with a nice white cotton fabric, held in place by large iron nailheads.

Louis XIV style furniture is often noted for its symmetry and balance, with grandiose lines and opulent carvings. The roughly X-shaped stretcher of this tabouret would have been commonly used on seating and tables during the latter half of the period. Each side connector is arched, but the curved lines are short, interrupted by angular barbs with thin molding. The center noix rises upwards, terminating in a pair of volute scrolls topped with an acanthus leaf.

Each of the four legs have been carved as square balusters, which are definitively Louis XIV. The legs are carved on all four sides, with foliate motifs at the top and bottom of the baluster. There are molded square joineries adorned with rosettes below the bottom leaves. Tapering spade feet can be seen beneath gadrooned protuberances underneath the joints. Our practical and elegant 19th century French Louis XIV style tabouret can be used with a variety of interiors.

CONDITION: Good antique condition, with wear commensurate to age and use, including minor rubs and losses. The tabouret has recently been reupholstered with white cotton.
