Chinese Burled Full Moon Stool


Like the full moon displaying its craters and ridges, the round seat of this otherwise straightforward stool displays the swirling grain and unusual markings of burled wood. Cultivated from irregular growths on trees, this type of wood is prized for its unique appearance. Highly valued by Chinese literati for its evocative markings, this 19th century stool may have once provided a seat in a scholar’s studio.
