Red Lacquered Chinese folding officials travelling bench c.1910.
A super rare and interesting item that was used as a status symbol for dignitaries and upper classes. The lower ranked within society would be on stalls or the floor. The seat has grand dimensions to add to make the sitter appear more important and imposing.
This is a folding foot stall to rest your feet on. Practical, decorative, a statement and a real piece of social history.
