Stretcher made with one steam bent piece linking the front two legs and two small turned pieces linking this with the two back legs. Good looking, but not as strong as the H stretcher. Gossip says that it made more room for the ladies' skirts, but I don't believe that's true. Sometimes referred to as a "cow horn" stretcher.
