Late Ming Dynasty_ Yellow pear square stool

Bench, also known as “wu stool” or commonly known as “wu zi”, is a seat without a backrest or armrest. The earliest image of a stool was seen on Han tomb murals, but it was not until the Song Dynasty that it gradually became an official seat.


This stool surface is made of standard grid angle mortise and tenon edges, and the inner edges of the four frames are stepped on and punched to create a thin rattan soft drawer. Two threaded strips are installed underneath to support it. Wipe the ice tray inward from the middle to the top and narrow the flat line. The straight teeth that tie the waist and edge are made of a wooden joint, combining the shoulder tenon with the legs and feet. The double tenons at the top of the legs and feet are incorporated into the bottom of the stool frame, and the lower end extends into a horse hoof with clear lines, which is thick, stable, and strong. The male line on the dental strip connects to the legs and feet. The four legs are connected by a cauldron. Pull back the cauldron under the teeth and insert it into the quadruped with a shoulder joint. This is the standard utensil for Ming style square stools, made of thick and sturdy materials, with concise lines and feet, appropriate proportions, elegant shapes, exquisite craftsmanship, and gorgeous and beautiful colors, showcasing the charm of Ming dynasty furniture.
