This is footstool that has the form of a rocker ... this type of footstool is commonly called a "gout" stool -- they were created in Victorian times for people with gout to rest their entire leg. This one is a fine example ... made c1890-1920 of mahogany. It's been recovered in a beautiful silk tone-on-tone damask upholstery that is a very attractive decorative color. In fact this color is very similar to the "Tangerine Tango" that Pantone has named the Color of the Year for 2012 -- so this stool is comfortably a combination of old and new. It's bordered on the side by brass nailhead trim that provides an attractive accent. This is a very comfortable stool to rest your legs on and it's a terrific accent piece that would blend with any decor and provide a very comfortable addition to your lifestyle. It would also make an excellent gift for anyone with sore feet, leg problems or even the gout (people still get it ... they just don't talk about it!).

AGE: c1890-1920

DIMENSIONS: It measures 20" x 15" x 15" high on the highest side .
