A beautiful antique hand carved stool from the Ashanti people of Ghana, West Africa. Carved from a single piece of hardwood depicting an elephant underneath the curved seat panel.
Rather than being a modern tourist reproduction, this is a genuinely old antique piece. Purchased in the 1940’s when the piece already had some good age, this piece dates to around the turn of the century.
The carving is of fabulous quality, with a lovely aged patina. Excellent condition with only light age related wear.
