A old Ashanti stool, from Ghana.
The curved surface of the stool is supported on the back of a carved wooden elephant.
The wood of the stool, elephant and base are smooth and tactile.
It is a heavy item, and weighs 1.2 kilograms (about two-and-a-half pounds).

Note: although small, this is a traditional item of African furniture, and NOT a child's toy.
It was manufactured many years ago, before modern safety regulations.
It is held together with old-fashioned screws, and is NOT suitable for small children.


The stool is  8  1/2  inches (22 cm) tall.
Weight 1200g (just under a pound)

Condition:

Good condition, with no major damage, but this is an old item, which has clearly been used over the years.

The elephant has lost his tusks.

There are minor surface scratches, marks and scuffs, as you can see, and a small crack in the wooden support (the piece that rests on the elephant's back).

This is not likely to cause the item to collapse!

There is a certain amount of "play" in the top of the stool; you might wish to tighten the screws.

The whole item could do with a polish.
