Joint Stool, Newport, Rhode Island
1710 to 1740; Maple
A fine and rare joined stool, outstanding turnings, and original feet
Exceptional form and presence, and a true rarity - SOLD


Joint Stool, Newport, Rhode Island
1710 to 1740, entire view

Examination of this Rhode Island joint stool was done to determine the originality of the top. The maple top, being one board, is presently held on with seven, 5/16" diameter wooden pins. There are two pins in each long rail and a single pin in each short rail. In addition, there is a single pin in the top of one leg. Although none of these pins appear to be period and original, they do enter what appear to be original holes in the rails. Several small 1/8" diameter wooden sprigs were also added through the top and into the side rails.

The top of the legs appear to have been cut, although not recently, most likely to bring them down to the level of the shrinking rail width. The tops of several legs have been haphazardly cut, with saw kerfs entering the tops of the rails. A red wash is still visible on the top side of the rails, but is not present on the top of the legs.

Given these observations, we believe the top to be a nineteenth century replacement; a trait often found in the few remaining survivors.

Overall, a rare and beautiful stool worthy of any advanced collection.

See American Furniture, Chipstone, 2005 edition, page 3; Early Rhode Island Turning by Erik Gronning and Dennis Carr; pp. 12 and 13.
