These stools were made especially for H. M. The Queen's coronation in 1953 at Westminster Abbey, and under the influence of Queen Mary (a keen antiques collector), were based on a 16th century "Farthingale" design. Various Buckinghamshire furniture manufacturers were commissioned to make the stools and chairs for the coronation. Guests were then allowed to buy their stools and chairs after the ceremony.

This stool is in immaculate condition and comes with the original protective cloth cover.
