michael pashby antiques A pair Regency Rosewood stools modeled after a design by Thomas Hope, circa 1815 “These elegant Regency stools are as relevant and appealing to our eyes today as they were to the late Georgian connoisseur. Attributed to Gillows, the fashionable cabinet makers of the Georgian era, this wonderful pair of x-frame stools was made from a design published in 1807 by Thomas Hope in the latest Grecian style. Exemplifying the best of Regency design and craftsmanship, the stools display a remarkably modern look.” —Michael Pashby of Michael Pashby Antiques
