Early 20th Century
Collected in rural northern New Mexico, the use of this object is unknown. Although the general design and size indicates a milk stool or one used for other simple purposes, the well-polished and rounded upper surface, both interior and exterior, shows considerable care in fabrication but its actual use is a mystery. Additionally, the use of the huge bolts and nuts on this hand-carved piece again testifies to a concerted effort to keep it together for some specific function that remains unknown.
