A mahogany folding stool with brass fittings by Charles Green.

The best description for the stool was given by the maker for his patent: A Camp Stool of suitable proportions may be made to occupy an exceedingly small space and to have an elegant appearance when closed. The seat is made in the form of a box, which contains the four legs, the ends of which are ferruled and made to fit closely into brass sockets in the rim of the box. Sliding bolts at the sides give the seat the necessary stability. The whole of this design is new in so far as regards the shape or configuration thereof. The stool is stamped with the patent details to 2 of the legs and the interior of the case. It is likely that 2 of the legs are historic replacements.

When packed down the stool forms a small case with carrying handle. This exact stool is illustrated in British Campaign Furniture by Brawer on page 179. Circa 1880.
