I found this old chair at a thrift store recently and have been unable to figure out what it was designed for, other than sitting on. As you can see in the picture, the back of the chair is hinged, rotates forward from the bottom and locks in a very awkward position. You can't really sit on it comfortably in that position. On the backside top of the chair back there are some brass brads holding down the remnants of some red velvet looking material. Just over the top of the back from there, there are some holes where it appears brads used to be. I am hopeful that someone can help me identify this chair and tell me how old it is.
