A Napoleon III finely-carved mahogany rope twist stool, in the form of intertwined rope knotted at the base, now upholstered with deep-buttoned golden silk velvet. In the manner of A M E Fournier.

The model for this stool was created by the upholsterer A.M.E. Fournier who worked in the boulevard Beaumarchais, Paris, from 1850 onwards.

A pouf à cordes by Fournier is in the Château de Compiègne and is illustrated in H. Hayward, World Furniture, London, 1965, p. 241, pl. 928.

A.M.E Fournier was established by 1850 at 109 boulevard Beaumarchais, and later at boulevard des Capucines. As well as exceptional case furniture, Fournier was famed for his upholstered work, exhibiting at many of the great exhibitions of the period, including l'Exposition Universelle of 1867. His most famous creation was the wonderfully naturalistic giltwood rope twist stool, which was as highly sought after in his own period as it is today.
