Catalogue Description:
Stool composed of ovoid padded seat upholstered in yellow vinyl and a metal two-footed pedestal. Seat back is wider than front and curved upward to support human figure. Pedestal base attached under front part of seat with screws (providing cantilevered support) composed of two symmetrical halves aligned with narrow space between them. Together these halves form a columnar rod that angles slightly forward and widens at base; at the base, the rod bends backward and forms two long splayed feet in a "V" shape along the floor. A large metal plate is attached to the underside of the columnar rod where it bends into the feet; plastic floor glides under the metal plate and under each of the two feet of the pedestal. Condition: Very good; normal wear or age reflected in both the upholstery and metal.
