Dark Elm Wood Stool
Shanxi, circa 1880
This is one of the most elegant Chinese stools we have seen recently, with prominent 'S' shaped stretchers at each side and distinctive, pointed horse hoof feet. The stool is from Shanxi province in central China, made from elm wood with the dark, once black, lacquer finish still largely intact but worn around the legs to show the paler wood. Beautifully made and with a lovely patina formed over the years, it would make a useful side table next to a bed or sofa.
