About this item
Quality Late Victorian mahogany parcel gilt duet piano stool
Our reference: TSP1046
Offered here for sale is an elegant and very high quality mahogany duet piano stool dating to the late Victorian period. The upholstered seat lifts to reveal two inner compartments to store music sheets. This useful storage space may nowadays be used for other items, such as magazines or linen if placed in a bedroom setting at the foot of a bed. The legs and stretchers are beautifully ring turned. The legs terminate in brass castors. The seat rails are decorated with parcel gilt. The lift-up seat has been traditionally re-upholstered by The Sitting Place from the frame and is then finished in Hardwick fabric by Jim Dickens (light blue and gold). The striking pattern is perfectly captured on the seat and also below the lift-up seat. This stylish stool is not only very pleasing to the eye but is also practical and can be placed in a living room setting, a bedroom setting, an alcove or even used as a window seat. Note that colours on screen may differ slightly from the actual colours.
