Antique Vintage Primitive Rustic Folk Art Carved Wood Stool Stand Pedestal

Years ago, someone made this stool and decided to embellish almost every surface with carved patterns. The top surface has a large central rosette with smaller blossoms in each corner. The end sides with the feet have more rosettes plus dashes, lines and v-cut borders. Other ends feature more V's, X's and dashes. The whole effect reminds me of carved wooden folk art from the early Pennsylvania Dutch as well as that of Eastern Europe. Found at a recent estate sale of a local primitive collector, its actual origins are unknown.

Constructed of 5/8" thick hard wood and nailed together, it features a double thick top and V-shaped cut-out sides that form the legs. Some of the nails have loosened slightly over the years, so the stool is a bit wobbly. Nevertheless, overall condition of this wonderful antique is very good with lots of surface wear from use over the years. Please check the supersized photos closely for details.

Measurements are about 14" long x 7-3/4" tall x 7" wide and it weighs about 3 pounds 14 ounces.

This handmade stool is a fabulous decorative item as well as a great addition to a primitive collection.

Thanks
