Here is a fine quality antique English Art Deco mahogany rectangular duet piano stool, made by Rushworth & Dreaper of Liverpool, circa 1930, which has been newly upholstered and is in excellent condition. Rushworth & Dreaper of Liverpool were famous makers of musical equipment and furniture, specifically church organs. The seat has been newly upholstered in a top-quality structured silk cream & pale gold chenille material, finished with matching braiding. The seat itself is firm, which means that you won’t sink into the upholstery, but at the same time, it is very comfortable to sit on. The duet stool is raised on quarter-circle legs, terminating on recessed feet, secured by a “H” shaped stretcher, for additional strength. The hinged seat lifts open to reveal an internal storage compartment; ideal for the storage of sheet music, if the item is used as a piano stool. The seat lid will remain open until you close the original metal folding stay on the right-hand side. The compartment roof retains the original mahogany, panels to the inside of the lid, as well as the original mahogany base. This piece boasts classic Art Deco styling in the overall design of the curved corners, clean “stepped” lines to top and the choice of materials.
This duet piano stool features a rich brown mahogany finish. It has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
This item would look superb in a variety of rooms from the bedroom to living room. This item would certainly grace any home and is a great investment as it is extremely functional. So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.

This stool is in excellent condition. The seat has been newly upholstered in a top-quality structured silk cream & pale gold chenille material, finished with matching braiding. The seat itself is firm, which means that you won’t sink into the upholstery, but at the same time, it is very comfortable to sit on. The upholstery is therefore new, clean and free from any wear, dirt or damage. The mahogany frame has been French polished in our workshop. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the mahogany frame, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The internal compartment is completely original with the original working brass stay. Importantly, there are no breaks to the legs or frame. This item is solid in joint and ready to use.
