Catalogue Note

Repetitive ball-turning was a common decorative device in Boston during the last quarter of the 17th century.  The turning is most prevalent on Boston made ‘Cromwellian’ side chairs. Other much scarcer furniture forms such as settees and gateleg tables survive  The currently offered lot is one of just a handful of ball-turned stools that exist.
