  • An antique peasant spinning chair in original red paint.

    Circa 1890. The chair retains hints of the original red/brown paint that would have been applied when produced by an artisan for use by a spinner. It will have normally have been used on an uneven earthen floor. The legs are original and delightfully expressive. There is a slight tilt to the seat which is intentional. It has a charming carved back with hand hold which are all complete with no loss.

    The patina and wear where it has been handled and sat upon is beautiful. It is a typical primitive variation on the Transylvanian stool.
