This exceptional pair of stools remain in wonderful untouched condition. They have many of the design features that Chippendale made so popular in the mid 18th Century. The quality of mahogany and exquisite carving would suggest they were made by one of the leading London cabinet makers of the time.
Although undoubtably made in the same workshop there are minor differences in construction
