Pair of Shandong Elm Stools
Shandong, circa 1900
This lovely pair of stools are from Shandong in northern China, made from elm wood. The square seat panels are set within thick outer frames and, finished with a dark wood stain and varnish, show off the attractive wood grain beautifully. The style is classically Chinese, with 'waisted' seats, horse hoof feet and S-shaped stretchers set high between the legs. Other nice details are the various tenon ends visible on the seat frames and legs - an indication of the intricate joinery used to produce the stools, without the need for nails. Beautifully proportioned and in a rich, warm colour, the stools are ideal for extra seating or as handy side tables. Sold as a pair, the price shown is for both stools.
