1690 - 1730

42.00cm high (16.54 inches high)
42.00cm deep (16.54 inches deep)
Description / Expertise
This is a particularly fine example of this rare model of close-stool from the Norfolk region. This is the only fourth example I have seen in the twenty-five years I have been dealing and in the best original condition. For example, I have not come across a carved interior lid before or all the original brassware, or the wooden seat. This is a characterful piece of furniture and a practical height to use as an occasional or lamp table beside modern settees.

The plank top in two sections with a moulded edge. Retains the original shaped brass hinge opening to reveal the lid carved with circular carved decoration. The original wooden seat which supported the pot is, unusually, in situ. The cylindrical body retains the original brass handles, shaped escutcheon and base moulding. Standing on replaced bun feet. Excellent original colour and patina. English, first quarter of the 18th century.
