A late Elizabethan oak and fruitwood child's high chair. Carved fruitwood back panel with lozenge and leafy spandrels, seat rails carved with a single large lunette. The same chair is also pictured in Tobias Jellinek book, Early British Chairs and Seats 1500 to 1700.
This so-called ‘movable’ screen is the only one of its kind known to have survived intact. Its original purpose was to screen the passage to the kitchen from the Great Hall – the main dining hall of Tudor times.
