Offered for sale is a late 19th century English fireplace sloped fender stool. The stool is covered in a padded floral needlepoint inset into a floral hand-carved frame. It is raised on hairy paw feet, which are shorter in the front than the back allowing for a slight incline towards the front.
Fireside fender stools were an 18th century luxury, which allowed a family to rest their feet or kneel in front of the fireplace hearth for warmth. It seems few have survived making them fairly rare, with most being found in the United Kingdom.
This later 19th century example is in excellent condition, still sturdy with nicely defined carving and beautiful needlepoint upholstery.
Size: 6 ½" Height sloping to 5" Height; 51" Length; 15" Depth.
