This piece is an antique grain mill ottoman from India. It is called a chakki and was originally used as a base for household stone flour mills. It is hand carved wood with metal brackets. The chakki measurements are 31" diameter x 13" high. You can use it as an ottoman, a dog bed, a low end-table, or cover it with glass for a great little table. The tapestry and cushion is included. This is authentic, not a reproduction like some of the current ones in the decor catalogs. Similar items online selling for $600-$700. It’s structurally sound, and is wonderfully distressed and has lovely patina. It has some nicks and cracks, which add to the vintage aesthetic. Beautiful vintage piece.
