Chinese Antique Round Stool
Shaanxi, circa 1900
This is one of the more unusual stools we have shipped from China, originating from Shaanxi province - home of the ancient Chinese capital of Xian. The stool's round seat is made from a single piece of wood, with five cabriole legs extending down to beautifully carved feet. The stretchers between the legs form a star shape in the centre. The stool is beautifully made and still in its original dark reddish brown finish. It would make a wonderful vase stand or use it as a side table or for occasional seating.
