    Eccentric as can be, and entirely handmade with unusual gold paint embellishment, this piece of folk art furniture shows characteristics of being
    African-American, but we will never know for sure. Full (brief) essay on the piece is found on the Dull Tool Dim Bulb Site here. http://dulltooldimbulb.blogspot.com/2012/01/funky-furniture-eccentric-handmade.html
