Antique Bambara stool, Mali
This antique stool represents a kneeling man. Carved from a single piece of wood, this piece measures 9 inches high and 16 inches across. Light and sturdy it could still be used as a stool, but also is a great stand alone sculpture.
Natural finish on this Ashanti stool from Ghana. This is made in the style of the chief’s stool and is traditionally only used inside. This stool has a small repair/crack on one of the corners of the top.
There’s a small old crack in the center of the top of this antique wood carving, which was used as a headrest in Ethiopia. It is about 6 inches tall. When I purchased this in Ethiopia, I was told that it is at least 300 years old. My guess is that it is at least 100 years old. It has a nice patina, and makes a great display for jewelry.
