Description: Circa 1685. Oak. A great looking stand with lovely spiral turnings -- even more appealing than usual, because the upper spirals are looser than the lower. Very few stands were made any earlier than this. The two legs were broken and repaired with rosehead nails very early in its life. They've been stable ever since and will continue that way. Octagonal top with thumbnail molded edge. A very attractive post with two spiral, double-bine turnings divided by a spool. The upper turnings are looser than the lower. Feet tenoned into heptagonal base, on ball feet. Two legs broken and repaired early in its life, one ball foot replaced.
Location of Origin: England
