French Arm Chair
As I mentioned previously, this is by far the "coolest" chair I've ever put up for sale.
In French, it is called a "Fauteuil de cabinet."
It was specifically designed to be used as a desk or with a desk. It has a high wrap
around back for extra comfort. It shape is unique in that the sitter is forced to sit
with legs apart, straddling the projecting front leg, and thus, making sitting at a desk
exceedingly convenient and practical. The small compartment on the arm pads serve as
hidden places for whatever you wish to hide. This innovation allowed the owner to store
spectacles, a snuff box or even money. The chair is made with over 500
individually place brass pins! Please click on the picture

SOLD, BUT ONLY A SIMILAR PIECE CAN BE ORDERED, AS EACH
PIECE IS UNIQUE.
