  • An antique primitive Spinning Chair C1890

    Circa 1890. The legs are original and delightfully expressive. There is a slight tilt to the seat which is intentional. Normally used on earthen floors by the spinner with her distaff. It has a charming and sought after heart and tulip carved back. 

    It is a typical primitive variation on the Transylvanian stool.
