This foot stool is a reproduction of the classic Stickley foot stool originally made by Gustov Stckley. This foot stool features a leather top. Quarter Sawn white oak 100% hand worked. the only electrons injured in the making of this fine heirloom piece was to power the radio and the lights. I apologize for the washed out pictures, the 2 that are not show the true color of the leather and the wood.
