This drum form stool was hand-carved from solid limestone by an artisan in China’s Shanxi province in the late 19th-century. Sculpted to a ridged melon shape, a traditional Chinese symbol of fertility, the drum is incised with trailing vines and flower blossoms. We love it juxtaposed as a side table with a mid-century seat, or as a stool in a grove of trees as the ultimate place to ponder.
