Rare Norwegian Kubbestol, circa 1850, Origin Telemark, Norway



Rare Norweigen Kubbestol, circa 1850, origin: Telemark, Norway Rosemaling and acanthus carvings in this extraordinary Kubbestol indicate it is most likely from Telemark, Norway, a region known for this exact carving and painting. A Kubbestol is a traditional Scandinavian chair carved from a single log / trunk of the tree; it is of cylindrical form wherein the upper part is hollowed and cut to form the backrest. The bottom half of the log is hollowed to make the chair lighter and reduce the possibility of cracking. This is an exceptional example of this style of chair from Norway.
