    Admittedly I hadn't either until I saw one at a local museum, I think Brinybay got it right that it was meant for women. I can not find mention of these chairs having a connection with sword wearing. It is always possible that designers just liked the concept & that they have no real purpose.

    Maybe I should repost these two photo's as an unsolved furniture mystery.
