This vintage low, elmwood stool was made in Northern China and dates from the 1970s. It has been lightly restored and finished in a distressed matt black. Much like a European milk tool, this piece was made for domestic use but traditionally in China, it was used for seating around a low dining table.
These stools were handmade in rural areas and as such, each one has a wonderfully rustic feel and tells its own unique story.
With their neutral elm finish and petite dimensions, these special little pieces are the perfect meditation seat or an ideal surface for a small devotional counter.
It has been lightly restored in an artisan Beijing workshop.
Dimensions: 26(w) x 14(d) x 18(h)cm
Material: Elm wood
