Small Oval Foot Stool Labeled "Cum Fut" - Early 20th Century
An unusual oval shaped foot stool measuring 14 1/2" by 8 1/2" by only 5 1/2" tall. Labeled "Cum Fut" on the underside and made (or sold) by the B.W.Cowen Corp. of New York City. From what we have read, this was a dry goods store that operated from the early part of the 20th Century to 1930.
Covered with iridescent green and burnt-orange silk damask and trimmed with matching braid around the perimeter. Sits on 4 turned wooden legs.
Nice and sturdy but not in perfect condition. There is one hole on the side and a weak spot in the fabric on the top. The finish on the legs is odd; there is almost a pattern of wear as though it were exposed to moisture but there is no indication of this on the fabric. Hard to say what the original finish was but a guess would be black paint that has chipped in a weird manner.
This would be an easy restoration project or is perfectly usable in its present condition and would make a nice little perch for a large doll.
