Antique English Edwardian Bench Stool Scallop Shell Seat England circa 1910

A charming antique English Edwardian period pull up seat stool bench with the shape of a scallop shell seat from England circa 1900. The unusual shape of this seat combined with the four turned legs have created a unique piece. The seat has been carved from a single piece of timber as that is the only way to achieve such a deeply moulded profile able to be seen from all directions. The four slender legs have each been turned from a single piece of wood with distinctive rings and are set at an angle to the seat to provide structural support. The legs are joined by an "H" shaped stretcher chosen so a foot tucked under the seat will be unobstructed. This is almost an example of functional sculpture because of the unusual shape and its function as a seat. It is certain to be just the right piece in an interior where a small eye catching seat is required.
