A rare mid 18th century parcel gilt mahogany stool attributed to the Yorkshire cabinet-makers Wright and Elwick, retaining almost all the original gilding and upholstered in green silk cut and uncut velvet, having serpentine shaped seat rails carved with C-scrolls and central acanthus clasp to front and reverse; on elegant cabriole legs with acanthus clasp to the knees, terminating in acanthus carved scroll toes.
Note: This outstanding stool was once part of a suite comprising eight chairs and two settees and possibly a further stool at Wentworth Woodhouse, Yorkshire. A similar suite was at Hackwood Park, Hampshire.
The toes have been tipped to reinstate the original height and complete the scroll design.
Commissioned by Charles, 2nd Marquess of Rockingham.
By descent to William, 4th Earl Fitzwilliam, Wentworth Woodhouse, Yorkshire.
Private collection, England.
