A beautifully carved Nigerian Igbo people’s chieftain stool. It features four incredibly striking outswept legs carved from a single piece of wood. The underside of the stool and legs are finely hand carved with decorations of incredible detail. The seat is charmingly concaved and remarkably comfortable!
The piece is incredibly heavy and features some gorgeous age-related wear, with a particularly attractive, tactile patination to the surface of the seat from the years of use. There are a couple of very old thin cracks to the seat and one leg but the entire stool is structurally perfectly solid and in overall excellent condition. This is just one of the most stunning, aesthetically pleasing little stools we’ve ever had the pleasure finding.
