The child stool in the permanent exhibition of the Transylvanian Museum of Ethnography was purchased from the village of Ieud, Maramureș, in 1955. The beauty of this piece is that its upper part is monoxyle, i.e. made of a single solid piece of wood, with an ellipsoidal shape, its legs being attached by the classical method, in four portholes. The furniture piece has a large porthole with a 20-cm diameter in its middle and a 38-cm height. Sitting there with its feet touching the ground, the child could be left alone safely. Also in the upper part, there is a cavity with the role of a plate for the child’s food. Generally addresing children who couldn’t walk yet, this object was extremely useful in the traditional household: the child placed inside this chair was safe and provided with entertainment, while its mother had time for the household chores.
