Large Carved Three Legged, Molar-like Tabletop Folk Art Chair

Regular price $130.00

The first thing I thought when I spotted this chair (purchased from a dealer with fabulous things in Medina, NY, near Rochester) was that the lower half looked just like a tooth (albeit with 3 roots rather than 4), and it reminded me of an antique dentist trade sign in the shape of a molar that I have been coveting forever but is well beyond my reach. How much better though to find the tooth form incorporated into a curious three legged chair! Really a fun one I think, and super sculptural, carved from one piece of pine wood with the three posts of the straight back echoing the three root-like legs.

11” t x 3 5/8” w x 3 5/8” d. In great shape with a nice warm patina.
