The set consists of one large duet stool and two smaller single stools. A set of stools of this quality and size would most likely have been used in a French country house.

The seats are firmly sprung and are comfortable to sit on. The original brass studded braiding holds the upholstery in place. The stools sit on elegant turned and carved floral legs. The design of the stool legs and stretchers are mirror matches on either side. The front and rear of the stools features an elegant double carved scroll stretcher. Connecting turned stretchers secure the front and back legs for added stability.
