Seller: doodsy100 ✉️ (609) 100%, Location: Birmingham, GB, Ships to: GB, Item: 125348126074 Genuine Victorian Handmade Low Jeweller's Stool - Wooden - Rustic. What a fantastic item this is. Salvaged from Birmingham's historic and world famous Jewellery Quarter, this jeweller's stool must have some stories to tell. Tradionally, these stools would have been handmade by the jeweller themselves to fit their own personal size and requirements. Made from oak or elm they were usually fashioned from the cut-out of a jeweller's bench. The taller stools were used by engravers, stampers etc., but the height of this one tells us that it was probably used by a stone setter or mount maker who needed to be seated lower than the other trades. They would have sat in a certain position for many years - hence the slight lean to one side, but this would have been the perfect position to make the exquisite items produced in the Jewellery Quarter for export around the world. The stool is in a well used and loved condition. It has a very visible repair on the underside, which is typical of the ethos in those days - if your favourite stool breaks, you don't buy a new one - you mend it! We think this only adds to the story of the past history of this item. It could be used as a plant stand, side table or just for decoration. It has been lightly buffed with beeswax to highlight its appealing age-related wear. H 39cm, W 39cm, D 35cm Delivery can be arranged at extra cost.
