Ditidaht totem “wishing stool” by sam williams

Item Number: Z853


This stool was carved by Sam Williams, the patriarch of the Williams family of carvers and was probably sold out of Ye Olde Curiosity Shop. The name “wishing stool” was coined by William Webber, a curio shop owner from Vancouver, BC, who also sold these seats. The bench itself is in the shape of a killer whale, with a 2-dimensional thunderbird painted on the top. The legs are model totem poles that feature ravens and frogs. These stools really exemplify the Williams family style of carving and painting. Ex Gilbert. 21”H x 18”L x 8”W.
