Although I am spending most of my time in the cottage (click HERE to read about the cottage), my furniture remains in Das Kleine Haus until the sale is final.
The walnut piano stool is one of the few things I have already brought to the cottage.
The stool was a real gem of a find. The price of $3.00 was not the only reason I purchased it. I knew it could have a better life in my home.
The first thing changed, was the rectangular swivel seat to a round one. Romantic roses and fringe just seem to fit.
Tilted on its side, you can see the influences of Eastlake style.
Another piece I have brought, is a small armless, stick & ball rocker.
From research on the Internet, I know this is called a "Ladies Rocker", or a sewing rocker. It was very popular in Victorian homes.
To this day, it is still a great chair to sit on while crocheting or hand sewing.
