Pair of Dark Elm Stools
Shandong, circa 1900
These large stools are ideal as side tables next to a bed or sofa, or used as handy extra seating. They originate from Shandong province in north eastern China and are made from elm wood. The style is one seen throughout China for centuries, with the central seat panel set within thick frames and a 'waisted' top over legs that end in the classic Chinese horse hoof style feet. The subtly curved S-shaped stretchers are another typical feature. The stools are finished in a rich, dark brown wood stain and varnished to bring out the lovely, wide grain of the elm wood. Sold as a pair, the price shown is for both stools.
