Ebonized three leg stool??
« on: January 07, 2020, 01:54:35 PM »
Hi everybody i purchased this stool recently not sure if it would be
all right to list it here as it's not really treen as such but thought i
would see if anybody knew anything more about it? I seem to remember
a stool being on the Drew Pritchard show salvage hunters which was similar
so i guess i may see it again in the future i think he described it as a reginal
piece of woodwork. Would love to find out where and when it may have been
produced thanks for looking :)

It's more furniture than treen but we don't have a furniture forum so it's fine here Daniel.  Could it be a milking stool?
Cheers!

Thats a nice looking stool. I bought an old  three legged stool which looked hand crafted at a local carboot sale last summer, only for a man who spotted me carrying it asking if I knew what it was?  Turned out he was a musician and he said that it was a foot stool presumably for when playing stringed instruments.  He offered to buy it off me, but I declined.  My daughter has first dibs, and its now used as a foot stool and a child's stool.  Yours looks taller though.

It is fairly nice i guess i don't usually buy thing's tbh other than glass items
but as things were getting low on the ground felt i should try a new subject
reason i picked it was the ebonizing usually a sign of decent quality i think on
period things and the legs reminded me of bobbin turned pieces which i have
always wanted a good example of :) The turning on the top was an added bonus
as i think finger crossed etc makes it belong to a group of regional produced furniture
not sure if just stools either very distant memories are all i have to go on sorry....
Quite a pleasing form maybe useful for milking also who knows :)

A milking stool sounds like a good idea.  The turning on the top would make it more stable to sit on as you would be unlikely to slide off.  Kind of like a textured surface with grip.
