Unique Painted Stool with Indian/Colonial America Story
Northeast America, appears to be dated 1859 (or 1849). Original paint decoration on pine. The primary figure is a native American male holding a sizeable bow. He is flanked by smaller vignettes that include: a church or meetinghouse with weathervane at the top of the tall spire; Indian (dancing?), Colonial figure with rifle; rooster, a huntsman firing on a rabbit; a fish; and songbird. The image would seem to tell the story of life on the frontier and the cohabitation of Native American and frontiersmen. About 12 1/4 inches long x 6 1/2 tall x 6 3/4 deep. A utilitarian object elevated to a very intriguing folk art historical narrative that merits further research and interpretation..
