Another version of this chair is in the V&A in London (Figure 5). The museum claims a 16th century date for this chair, although Chinnery (1979) attributes it to the early 17th century. Although often referred to as "folding" chairs, these chairs do not actually fold, they dismantle. The purpose behind the peculiar shape of the arms is not clear.
