- Medium sized low stool constructed of five boards
- Central rectangular cut hole to aid lifting / moving
- Curved decorative arch in each two-leg panel in a very similar manner to Scottish vernacular 'Creepie' stools
- Original stain and grain painted effects to the external surfaces
- In solid antique condition with lovely wear and patina to the painted surfaces

These stools were of great utility in rural homes for seating by the fire, as a candle stand, small table or workbench. Ready for another 130 years in a new home as a highly decorative original painted stool.
