This candle stool is a very good example of English Country furniture with a lovely polished elm top.
The thick rectangular top is made of solid elm and has a lower chamfered edge. The legs are made from ash or elm and are well turned, typical of the first half of the 19th century.
The style and form of the turning on the legs of country chairs and stools can often dictate the area of manufacture and sometimes the exact maker. A similar leg form to this occurs on chairs from the North East Midlands of England - See; The English Regional chair by Bernard Cotton, published by The Antique Collectors Club.
This piece is beautifully patinated with a very good figure to the top.
We date this piece to the mid/early 19th century, early Victorian period, circa 1840.
