Three Very Old Sculptural Ethiopian Stools

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


This set of drum stools are from Ethiopia, circa early 20th century and made from dense wood with natural patina and good age. These drum stools have old inventory numbers on them from a previous collection. These were initially made for stools but have sculptural forms and would make a great accent piece, we imagine them as book ends and pedestals. Their irregularities in height make them even more special, truly one of a kind.
