A vintage Poll-Parrot Shoes child’s shoe fitting bench and stool in original paint. The wooden bench frame features a slightly-canted, plank back above a padded seat in bubble gum-pink vinyl. The seat platform is separated by four animal-shaped armrests in the form of a horse, a ram, a lamb, and a cheetah. The bench rises on shaped, light blue-painted end panels, each of which is decorated with a colorful parrot perched over the words “Poll-Parrot / Shoes / for Boys and Girls”. Also included is a vintage pig-form child’s shoe fitting stool. It is unmarked, but likely by the same manufacturer.
