An unusual set of four 19th century Staffordshire pottery furniture rests or supports, pearlware decorated with overglaze enamel colours.
Furniture rests were used to keep heavy ‘carcass’ furniture such as chests, coffers & blanket boxes clear of potentially damp flagstone floors.
*Occasionally these are mistakenly called ‘window stops’, for holding a sash window open slightly, a totally impractical and unworkable idea.
