Spanish Cock Fighting Chair.....


I bought this old chair today. It is very small and I am not sure what we will use it for.....but for 90 bucks, it is unique enough that we will figure something out for it. The shop owner said it is a stool that was used in Spain to watch cock fighting....who knows if that is true but it still makes for something different. One thing we have thought about was a place to put folded bath towels in our bathroom once it is remodeled.....any other ideas????

that is a beautiful chair! i like the idea of towels - the wood has a warm look to it.

Er, no. It's a birthing stool. The woman squatted backwards on it, permitting the baby to slide out easily. The ring on the top is for biting, the handles on the sides for gripping. Excellent design, actually. Much better than the way modern obstetricians do it.
