Rare pair of early 18th Century Italian Carved Walnut Stools, Circa 1730.


The shape, elegance & texture of this masterful pair cannot be overstated, they reflect the finest of early 18th Century Italian design, from the beautiful scrolled cabriole leg, with wonderfully carved knees, terminating in the most amazing hairy hoof feet, with the elegantly shaped cross stretcher with turned finial, all part of the most delightful overall serpentine shape. It is incredible that these superb stools have spent over 250 years together since they were first commissioned.  They are in very good condition commensurate with their outstanding age. They exhibit a superbly warm & mellow aged colour & patina.
