Constructed using mortise-and-tenon joinery, this early 20th century everyday stool from China's Hebei province has a relaxed presence and balanced form. Three round legs support a flat seat that has been cut to the silhouette of a butterfly, a common symbol of joy and happiness. The stool's darkened surface has become beautifully weathered from a century of use, revealing the warm browns of Chinese elmwood along the legs and interlocking stretchers.
