Vintage English Jacobean Style Turned Oak Stool, Caned Seat, Edwardian Period, England circa 1910

Jacobean Style Turned Oak Stool, Caned Seat, Edwardian Period, England c.1910. This charming little stool was always used as a pull up piece of additional seating in a room as well as a small table for books and magazines. The four turned legs all have a distinctive shape because of how they were made on a lathe that turned the rough timber so it could be shaped. Please note how the legs are connected with horizontal stretchers (also turned shape) that provide structural stability as well as balance and beauty. The woven cane seat was originally covered with a loose cushion and the cane provided ventilation as opposed to a solid wood seat. Charming then, charming now.
