For sale, a very rare George III Period mahogany and leather gout stool with turned legs and single ratchet mechanism.

This early surviving example still exists with its original buttoned leather upholstery and is in superb condition given its age, with some slight movement to the joint in the backrest. Accounting for the beautiful originality of the piece, I have not considered re-upholstering or touching it, the patina to the leather is just great.

The single sectioned base is manoeuvred up and down by means of an adjustable ratchet mechanism. By altering this mechanism, the angle of the upholstered top can be manipulated to allow for ease of use and comfort.

Gout was a common affliction throughout the wealthy classes in the nineteenth century, common enough for James Gillray in 1799 to provide a caricature of its effects. Happily not so frequent today this stool is still a good looking and ultimately useful piece of furniture.

Please call me on 07815 046645 to discuss carriage, condition or for any other queries, alternatively, you can also message me and I will endeavour to come back to you as soon as possible.
