A Vintage Carved African Ashanti Stool form the early part of the 20th century.
This African Tribal stool features very nice detailing and patina and is carved from a solid piece of wood.
These stools are a part of the long history of the Ashanti tribe from Ghana. It was the Ashanti custom for every man and woman to have their own stool. Alongside their pragmatic use, the stools also have a spiritual meaning. They served as the seat of the owner’s soul. When the stool was not used, it was leaned aslant against a wall in order to prevent other ‘souls’ passing by from sitting on it. Should a high dignitary pass away, they stool would be dyed black. This piece of furniture thus became a sacred object of recollection, of remembering one’s ancestors. It would hence be venerated, sacrificed and no one was allowed to sit on it.
Now this stool can be a unique interior item that can be used in a hallway entrance area or living room and is a real talking point or statement piece to enhance any setting.
In good vintage condition with some wear commensurate with age and use.
