All covered with its fine black cotton original lining, ebonized turned armdiscs and top finial. The ebonized foot is also the original and can be adjusted with a butterfly screw.
Minor and antique woodworm that was treated and should not spread any longer. Exquisite petite size corresponding to the women's fashion standards of the era.Total height as photographed : 61 (155cm). The body itself with wooden finial is 31h (78cm h). The foot encroachment (diameter on the ground) at the base is around 20 (empiètement au sol 50cm). Excellent antique used condition with very minor signs of use (small tears, unstitching as shown) commensurate with age, likely to be dated 1860-80, a museum piece, all original and untouched. Gorgeous shabby chic appeal, perfect "as is" or for displaying antique clothes, scarves, jewels, for photo shooting.
