Vintage Small Senufo 4-Leg Stool - Ivory Coast

$298.00

The Senufo are a group of people who reside in northern Ivory Coast. This very small, very well used stool is hand-carved from a single piece of wood. Very low to the ground it's almost like sitting on the ground itself but it does lift a woman off the ground just enough so she's not on the dirt. Women often prepare food while sitting low to the ground which this stool affords. People in tribal, traditional African villages do not have table or counters for food preparation. Any traditional Senufo household will have a large complement of such stools for everyone to use when they are there. This one is heavily patinated, evidence of many years of use. It was obviously very useful to the family that owned it.

This beautiful stool measures: 10 x 6 1/2 x 4" tall (25 x 16.5 x 10 cm)
