Catalogue Description:
Wooden stool of "lattice-work" type. As restored, consists of curved top resting on 4 square legs, which are connected near their lower ends by rails. In between seat and rails on all 4 sides are "lattice-work" supports. On the shorter sides are three slats: a vertical slat in center and a diagonal on either side slanting to lower outside corner. On longer side are four slats: two vertical slats in center and a diagonal to either side. The top consists of wooden slats laid parallel to one another. Remnants of a white ground layer, thickly applied over bare wood, can be seen on all panels of the seat, in spots on the four legs and in one spot on one of the four stretchers. This appears to be original material to the object. On top of this white layer, traces of red pigment can been seen. Remnants of what appear to be original mud and straw fill material can bee seen on the underside of the seat panels.
