A Very Rustic

Primitive Pine Antique Foot Stool

From Berks County, PA.

Pennsylvanian Dutch Origin -  Circa 1880



DESCRIPTION

An Early Pine Foot Stool

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 footstool.    

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!
