TONK CHICAGO & NEW YORK ORIGINAL PIANO STOOL. SOLID OAK, MINT CONDITION, circa 1890. RAISED ON GLASS BALLS AND CLAW FEET, all in mint condition. RING TURNED LEGS ATTACHED TO A LOWER PLATFORM. HEIGH ADJUSTABLE (21 at the lowest). ROUND SEAT (14.5 in diameter) WITH CARVED TRIM. BEAUTIFUL WOOD TONE & PATINA. Max Tonk, born in Berlin in 1851, went with his family to Chicago in 1857. He learned to carve and worked in his uncle’s piano and organ factory carving embellishments of the instruments. In 1873 he opened his own carving shop supplying the Chicago cabinet industry with fancy ornaments for cabinets and caskets. In the 1880s Tonk Manufacturing began to make swivel seat piano stools for the growing musical industry. Tonk became the largest maker of piano stools in the country, making the majority of swivel seat stools on the market, including the ubiquitous round oak stool with claw feet. Tonk Manufacturing was eventually headed by three generations of Tonks. We’ll keep you updated during the process. Reasonable offers are always very welcome and negotiating can be really fun.
