Three Spool Leg Antique Stool with Piecework Top and Unusual Form

Regular price $130.00

The silk piecework covering the face of this antique stool is much worn, but I find it really beautiful, and I love the unusual shape of the stool, evoking hand fans and fire screens, and with the spooled handle, like a fourth leg, completing the reference. Cut of a very thick slab of wood, with three more spooled legs to stand on. C. 1870s-80s New England, I believe. 

16” at handle, 11 5/8” x 7 1/2” t.  I wouldn't put much weight on it, as the legs are a little wobbly, but fine for resting one's feet!
