More portable than chairs, stools were a versatile seating option for Qing-dynasty scholars, nobles, and peasants alike. This provincial stool dates to the turn of the century and would have been used throughout a courtyard home as versatile everyday seating. The tapered stool features a narrow, rectangular seat supported by four splayed legs linked with straight side stretchers and floor stretchers that double as footrests. Weathered from years of use, the stool has an unfinished surface that reveals its fantastic character and rustic, wabi-sabi texture.
