Rare Pair of Georgian Dresser Stools

$ 2,650
  • Description
    Very fine and rare pair of George II period mahogany dresser stools, the single board tops of dense mahogany with thumb molded edge over scalloped trestle ends with boarded sides.
    Very attractive and useful in their own right, dresser stools have long sought after by both collectors of treen and vernacular furniture. Their original purpose was apparently to elevate platters and chargers on a serving piece (i.e. a dresser) to find a pair is a rarity and to find ones made in such beautiful timber and of sophisticated "town" styling is especially gratifying.

Message from Seller:

Yew Tree House Antiques was launched in 1991, fueled by a passion for collecting the unexpected. Kevin Kleinbardt and Ahna Petersen, with independent backgrounds in furniture and art history respectively, joined forces to focus on pieces with a “soulfulness of character,” as Ahna likes to say.
