This is a rare example of a small Candle Stand or very small (miniature) stool, Circa 1850.
Small stools or candle stand of these very small proportions are rare.
The thick circular top is well hand turned and hand painted with a red colour. The four legs are well turned with ring turned detail and small feet , splaying outwards.
This piece is well patinated, with obvious wear from use to the top and outer legs.
We date this piece to the mid 19th century, circa 1850, or possibly slightly earlier.
Good antique condition
Wear to bottom of legs from normal use plus loss of paint to the top, again with use.
Please see images.
