Chinese Cinnabar Glazed Garden Stool

About

Hand-formed by an artisan in southern China, this early 20th century garden stool has a traditional drum-form design. Ringing both its top and bottom, a pattern of boss-head nails imitates those used to stretch a skin on an actual drum. Interlocking double coin motifs pattern the stool's sides, symbols of good fortune and prosperity. The stool is cloaked in a beautiful, dark cinnabar glaze, which drips and pools over its detailed form. Traditionally used as a place to rest one’s feet, a stool like this is perfect as a garden seat or side table. Additional dimensions: Seat diameter 14".
