A small, folding Stool or Candle Stand that looks to be made in a pale arbutus wood.
The stool's legs fold to fit flush to the underside of the top, which is cut to the shape of the legs. The top is also cut to allow the brass support bars for the legs to tuck away. The top is hinged to the middle to half the length but double the depth of the stool when packed. The legs have trefoil cut outs to the middle and lines to resemble stitching have been cut into the wood parallel to the edges. It can be used as foot stool but could also be used to raise a candlestick when its burning low. Everything about this stool, from the design to the decoration, is very neat and tidy. Circa 1900.
Size for use is given.
