Early Sheared Footstool
Early New England footstool in original Windsor green paint with yellow pinstripe on each leg. The top retains its original and untouched cloth and sheared wool padding with a wonderful whimsical flower design flanked by a caterpillar border. Fringe work is intact and held in place with early nails. Condition is completely as-descended with few minor losses that are consistent with wear and age. Originally from a Massachusetts North Shore home. Ca. 1825. 14"W x 7 1/2"D x 9"T.
