Condition: The overall condition is very good however there is an old stable hairline crack to the seat, a few old chips to the seat edge, now softened and timeworn and losses where the swivel shaft connects to the seat under bottom (Please see detail photos), otherwise all original with appropriate and expected time worn gilt loss to sections of the seat which reveals the ochre toned sizing beneath.
The Fantasy Stool measures 17.25” wide by 18.25” deep by 25.25” high. Seat height 19.75”.
