These Chairs are apart of Egyptian history. The first 4 chairs were found in King Tutankhamun's tomb, circa 1922.

This is the beginning.....His mask.

*NOTE: Egyptian History Time Line- 4500 B.C.-A.D. 30. Very consistant with their work, culture and art had an unchaging identity, fueled by their religious beliefs.

The Throne

The chair is true to Egyptian style with the claw foot of an animal and feline-form legs. It has inlays of gold and silver with semi-precious stones. Other stones include: Colored glass, faience, and calcite.

Child's Chair

because of its small scale; less than 30" high. Made out of wood its design is rather contemporary and has a great choice of contrasting colours, especially with the side panels; that are made of gold. The design on the back reminds me of Africa!

This Chair is called the "Inlaid" also referred to as the"Ceremonial chair" it has the legs of a folding stool, and an intricately patterned back. It is made of ebony that is gold-leafed and inlayed with ivory, coloured glass, Egyptian faience, and precious stones. 44" high.

This is a stool imitating leopard skin, but not made to fold. A women might sit on this. Very rigid and has inflexiable seat that is firmly joined to the legs.
