KING FAROUK OF EGYPT OWNED THIS KINGLY BENCH.... (*note the symbols of Royal Power, the PAIR OF ROARING RAMPANT LION SCULPTURES gracing each end of his royal Bench). King Farouk was probably the richest king in the world, during his reign, and he bought easily anything and everything that he he desired. And he liked items which displayed symbols of his majestic powers.

Photos include Hand Woven, Hand tied CAMEL HAIR Rug which is 57 Long x 21 Wide. Rug appears to have never been used as a rug, but as used as a throw over a table or other furniture. Arkansas Owner/heirs of Farouk items have commissioned us to list their items and handle ultimate sale of these items, in their behalf. Terms of Sale: Owners have agreed to a 6 month Lay-Away Plan, with down payment of 1/3 of item price. *note: Photos of bench show it with, and without the Velour Seat Cushion. SOUTHEBY'S, IN 1952, appraised and auctioned the sale of this bench and thousands of King Farouk Treasures. The sale was at the behest of the THE MILITARY COUP WHICH OVERTHREW FAROUK, confiscated his palaces and his vast collections. John Mendenhahl an American, was an oil tycoon in Egypt. The military government confiscated Mendenhahl's oil business and prevented him from transfering his bank accounts out of Egypt. But the new government allowed him to spend his bank held money in Egypt. He purchased King Farouk Palace items. The Farouk items we are selling for present owners, are from the collection Mendenhahl purchased from the Farouk palace collections in 1952.

Patented antique cast iron footstool. Incised mark on interior sides: W. H. Howell Co., Geneva ILL, Pat. Applied for. Solid, sturdy stool. The metal has a tad of rust, but is not bad. Some paint loss on the feet and shield motif. Very heavy, well-made, and easy to reupholster. I put this fabric over the original but you can easily replace it. Needlepoint, velvet, silk, would be very nice on this stool. The original fabric was velvet, but it is grungy and threadbare. You could also spray paint the metal white for a shabby chic look or any other color. This stool stands 9 tall x 14 long. One picture shows it with a different fabric swatch over it just to give you some ideas. These old ones are hard to find in decent usable condition. It will last another couple of lifetimes. A decorator's delight! dix-miant#92983/09

This is a previously unpublished example of American Aesthetic Movement brass furniture. only marked with a cast in iron patent date, April 18th A Brass Menagerie: Metalwork of the Aesthetic Movement. The Aesthetic movement was a late-19th -century artistic movement in England and America. Formed in reaction to the so-called philistine tastes of the middle class, it espoused art for art's sake while denying any social or moral value in art. (Both James McNeill Whistler and Oscar Wilde were advocates, and were thoroughly lampooned in Gilbert and Sullivan's Patience.) In America the movement was introduced at the American Centennial celebration in Philadelphia in 1876. It remained popular in this country through the 1880s and was particularly evident in the decorative arts, as manufacturers created innovative and artistic applications of industrial metals that were visually and materially complex and called art brass or artistic bronze goods. Art brass maximized industrial mass production techniques and helped to set the stage for 20th -century decorative arts that would also utilize tubular metals and other industrial materials in the creation of decorative household goods. This stand represents an outstanding example of 19th century American Art Brass.
