More portable than chairs, stools were a versatile seating option for Qing-dynasty scholars, nobles, and peasants alike. The balanced proportions of this tapered stool from China's Shanxi province show us how masterfully traditional carpenters married form and function. The stool features a rectangular seat supported by four splayed legs linked with double side stretchers and straight floor stretchers. Gently weathered from years of use, the stool has an unfinished surface that showcases the raw texture of the wood, marked with traces of the original red-brown painted finish.

Seat: 13.5"W x 7"D
Leg Splay: 10.5"W
