Primitive Pine Antique Foot
From Berks County,
Pennsylvanian Dutch Origin -
An Early Pine Foot
A really PRIMITIVE and very RUSTIC
Pennsylvania Dutch Footstool, found locally in Berks County. The legs
were mortised thru the top. The top surface is well worn, the mortised
joins are strong and stable with no looseness. Nice and smooth to the
touch when you run your hand over the seat. The ends of the seat are
curved and there are old square nails holding the little aprons to the curved
arch legs. There are traces of the old dark worn finish all over the
It's good and sturdy and strong.
More than likely it was used for many
years on an uneven rough stone floor which would account for the tiny wobble
when placed on a flat surface. We've left that as it is, shaving down
one of the feet to get rid of that little wobble would take away from the
character of this rustic antique.
Old square nails, and very sturdy mortised
construction ... A Rustic Antique Beauty!
