SOLD--Matched Pair of Leather and Iron Morgan Colt Stools or Benches

0.00

A matched (very similar, but not identical) pair of wrought iron stools or benches with thick leather sling seats, of Curule (an ancient Roman furniture form) or X-shape, by Morgan Colt (1876-1926), a well-known painter and craftsman, who worked in New Hope, Pennsylvania in the early 20th century and was influenced by Arts & Crafts design, garden furniture and English Gothic design. The hand-wrought shaped X-legs wrought iron legs, ending in pad feet, are centered by a star and the sides are reinforced with elongated X-cross stretchers. The thick chocolate brown leather seats are framed with wrought iron rings at each corner.

We acquired each of these stools years apart, in different locations. They are both by Morgan Colt and date from the same period, the early 20th century. Due to variations in the handmade process (versus mass production) in which this furniture was made, the leather seats are slightly different sizes, as seen in the photographs. They are very sturdy and comfortable as occasional seating or as foot rests.

Stool A (on left in photo):

Height 19 1/2 inches, width 25 inches, depth 18 inches, seat height 16 inches

Stool B (on right in photo):

Height 18 1/2 inches, width 27 inches, depth 18 1/2 inches, seat height 18 inches.
