Pair of Large French Napoleon III Cast Iron Stools
These stunning cast iron Napoleon III stools have the most gorgeous patina we've ever seen. Their faded red, grey and cream paint is perfect to make the detailing show to its best advantage and the surface rust adds additional interest to make a powerful statement. In exceptional condition, they are covered with a simple white woven fabric, but the seats can be removed should you wish to recover them either in a water-proof fabric for your garden or in something chic for indoor use. If your intent is to use them in the garden, they should be sealed to preserve the gorgeous patina, but no worries about their durability outside. They would be sensational at the foot of a bed, flanking a fireplace, or as a resting spot in a hallway. Very comfortable, their commodious size is a plus. They could also easily be converted into end tables with the addition of a stone top in lieu of the fabric seats.
