Antique English Charles II Style Oak Joint Close Sewing Box Seat Stool (Circa 1880). This is a rustic Charles II style oak joint close box stool. Constructed in the Victorian period (circa 1880) from earlier 17. Century timbers, in good original condition. Item: Sewing Box / Seat Stool. Constructed in Victorian period. Original iron strap hinges. 3 baize lined pull out work trays / boxes. Baluster turned block legs. Peg & joined construction. Original polish & patination. Incorporating a moulded hinged lid, secured by iron strap hinges, the interior is fitted with three baize lined pull out work trays / boxes. The stool would make an ideal sewing box or tidy. The front and sides of the box are decorated with a lunette carved frieze. The box is constructed in the traditional peg and joined manner and is raised on four baluster turned block legs, united with block stretchers for added stability. The style of this joint stool reflects the mid-late 17. Century, specifically the Charles II restoration period, which was between 1660 to 1685. The term Restoration is used to describe both the actual event by which the monarchy was restored, and the period of several years afterwards in which a new political settlement was established after the wars between England, Scottish and Irish monarchies. These types of boxes were also originally referred to as a close stool, as it was used in confined spaces, or night stools as some would have had a pewter chamber pot stored inside the box. Its unlikely this one was used with a chamber pot because it had a candle box inside and there would have not been room for both items. This primitive box would have been used for storing candles and shoes etc. And also used as a small table in a kitchen. It was small enough to be carried around in the house wherever a small stool or table was required. To put this value into perspective, apparently, in 1611 the Archbishop of Dublin was paid 40 shillings per annum. This stool has a beautiful deep rich oak patina, which has been generated by the years of cleaning and care it has received. This truly is a very beautiful item with quality construction and is original throughout. This item would certainly grace any home. So don’t miss out on your chance to own such a lovely antique item.
