c. 1880's Tonk Antique Piano Stool NY Chicago :
A beautfiul antique piano stool that was manufactured by The Tonk Co. in Chicago/New York. Below is an article that I researched telling about Max Tonk and the company that he founded. The plate that attaches the stool top to the legs states that it is a Tonk piano stool.The upholstery is in remarkable condition. This stool will make a great accent piece in anyone's home. "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. "As seen in The Antique Shoppe Newspaper, May, 2005 by Fred Taylor
