Hime and Addison piano stool.

Post by Duckgirl » 25 Aug 2018, 15:49

I've just joined this forum because today we bought a piece of furniture with the label "Hime and Addison. Manchester." which appears to be an adjustable piano stool. It's made from mahogany and the base and legs are quite ornate and beautifully crafted. One side has a wooden knob which has some sort of spring behind it, and the opposite side has a small horizontal wooden "bar" but we can't work out how it adjusts. Can anyone help me as to how you adjust it and how old it is. If it's any help I can take some pics and attach them to another post.

Normally, there is a knob on each side, and you simply turn them both together. I can't picture the device you describe, so photos might help.#

It's worth searching google images for adjustable piano stool.

Hime & Addison were dealers from the late 1800s onwards.

Hmm. Can't see my reply to your post so I'll try again. I took two pics of either side but can't work out how to upload them here despite trying the "insert image" button. Can you help?

Alternatively you could load your photographs into google documents, publish to the web and then copy the web address into a post.

I have no idea what happened to your first reply, but we didn't see it.

The easiest way is to email photos to me and I will post them for you.

Did you look at Google Images?
