Pair of Square Stools with Footrests
Shanxi, circa 1900
These two stools are a little unusual in that they have stretchers just above the horse hoof shaped feet, acting as both footrests and supports. Otherwise they have the same waisted seats seen on most other Chinese stools. The dark, reddish brown colour is old but worn away on the seats to the elm wood below. Sold as a pair, the price is for the two stools.
