This is a stunning antique William IV mahogany and leather banquette or stool, circa 1835 in date. It has fantastic button backed leather upholstery in a fabulous colour, we call it browny burnt orange. This banquette is truly lovely and would look amazing wherever you place it.

This stool is upholstered in top quality Scottish cow hide which has been hand dyed and antiqued. Because it is hand dyed we can finish the leather to any colour requested, and the beautiful antique patina is achieved by the  special walnut based stains that we use in the process.

The brief reign of William IV (1830 - 1837) marked a period of transition between the Regency period (which had been an age of innovation based on revivalist styles such as ancient Egypt, and the Grecian designs) and the Victorian era. William IV furniture is similar in style to Regency furniture with many of the designs from the Regency period being copied but often executed in a much heavier manner with chairs, tables and other items being coarser and clumsier in appearance when compared with those made during the Regency period. Popular pieces produced during this period include tilt top dining tables and pillared extendable tables. Sofa tables and drum tables were also favoured at the time as were sideboards and card tables. Heavy brass fittings were a prominent feature such as lion's paw feet on tables.  Chairs frequently sported sabre legs to the back with stumpy bulbous turned legs to the front.  The rope twist carved back was also much in favour. This period also saw the introduction of the more exotic timbers such as rosewood and zebra wood.  With the Industrial Revolution getting under way furniture making saw the increased use of mechanisation a trend set to accelerate during the Victorian period. This short, but important transitional period eventually gave way to the romanticism of the Victorians but the furniture it produced was usually of good quality and it remains sought after and desirable today.
