Original Hand Made Canadian Wilno Pine Stool with Overpaint with Green original paint underneath with Box / Square Joint Construction, attributed most likely to be by John Koslowski, Last Quarter 19th Century, 19 1/2” L x 11 1/4” H x 9 1/2” W, with wear including paint loss.
The most well known of these Canadiana Wilno carpenter-furniture makers was John Koslowski. Although much of the so-called Wilno furniture has been attributed to him, very little is known about the man himself. It is believed that he arrived in Canada in the late 1880's and left the Wilno area in May of 1903 after his wife, Victoria, was killed a month earlier by a falling tree. After Victoria's death, John lost heart for his trade and left the area.
