A rare and unusual 19th century cock fighting chair

£425.00

A wonderful 19th century cock fighting chair of very unusual design.

Possibly French in origin, raised on slender legs terminating on the original wooden casters.

A very interesting piece given the social history behind its original use.

Most likely a bespoke one-off commission given the addition of the back rest to allow the user the option of both comfort and spectatorship during the cock fighting.

Dimensions:-

Height: 76cm
Width: 56cm
Depth: 84cm
Seat height: 44.5cm

The chair has been reupholstered during its life and has some small areas of wear and tear but is still useable. The back two casters have worn flat due to the nature of them being made of timber, this makes the chair more useable if placed up against a wall.
