‘Kingfisher’ Yorkshire Oak Adzed Cow Stool

Stock ref: DS1344

Circa 1980s

Superb 'Kingfisher' carved Yorkshire oak cow stool. The octagonal top features a Yorkshire rose  carved centrally, typical  exposed and wedged leg joints through the seat and scalloped lower edge. The three curved legs are extensively adzed and a kingfisher is carved in high relief to one leg. Lovely honey colour, free from any stains or damage.

The identity of this carver  remains uncertain, often incorrectly attributed to the former Thompson's master carver Stan Dodd's who carved a very similar Woodpecker on personal work, however it is thought most likely to be the work of Herbert Bird of York, although little is known about him. If anyone can confirm his identity or has any information about Herbert  we would be delighted to hear form them.

Size: 26.5(seat dia) x 34(h)cm. Max leg width 33cm.
