Superb  and rare to find an old African Senufo milk stool on four tapered legs with an abstract form and a high relief carving of a turtle  and geometric forms on the legs  . Carved from one piece of solid heavy  wood.
Senufo designs have become popular with decorators for their elegance and beauty. This stool is a fine example of Senufo style as well as a great authentic used piece

10.75" L x 17.5" W x 9.25" H and 10.25" Highest part
