19th Century Hand Turned Footstool or Children's Stool - Pennsylvania Dutch Country Primitive - Remnants of Hand Painting
Hand turned wooden stool with wicker top, 13 1/2" x 9 1/2_ and 7" high. It comes from an old farm in eastern Pennsylvania. The area was mainly populated by Pennsylvania Dutch and Mennonites until fairly recently. The stool dates from the mid to late 1800's, but the wicker must have been replaced sometime in the 1900's. The original stool would have had wicker or rattan, as the threading holes appear to be part of the original design.
There are remnant of painting on the corners and on the balls of the turned legs. Please see the close-up photos. One leg is slightly askew - I imagine a child too big for the stool may have used it. The stool rocks very slightly on a hard flat surface. I would not use it for anything too heavy, but it is not fragile.
The stool is shown on all sides.
