My wife obtained this beautiful chair and was told that they called them Gossip chairs? Does anyone know if this is right? Who made them? and from what era they came? or anything else you might know about them. Would love to get some information on this. Thanks

    Aren't gossip chairs two chairs attached? It looks similar to the chair/table my grandparents had next to their house phone when I was growing up. It's gorgeous whatever it's original purpose was...
