Funny Vintage Foot Stool///Ottoman

hopalong.acropolisJuly 20, 2009

I recently picked this up at a thrift store for a couple dollars, and was just wondering if anybody has ever seen one like it or knows anything about it? Also if there are other forums I could try, that would be great too! Thanks!

It blows up like an old balloon/air matress on the bottom (has a cap like that on a squirt gun). No labels or anything on it, looks like there used to be a sticker possibly but is off. Pretty funny piece

I'd try the antique forum and the home decorating forum (which gets a lot of traffic), both have members who seem to have seen everything under the sun. It's really a rather fun and quirky piece. Can you change the display?

Hi,

I saw this on eBay once, you might try looking there. I believe it's 1950s judging from the legs. Good luck!
