Chair with Papyrus Decoration

By the New Kingdom, Egyptians used a large number of different types of stools, the most common of which were lattice stools.

This wooden chair had a seat made of lattice covered with a layer of papyrus, which is now missing, as visible on the chair back.

The legs of the chair are made of ebony to look like an animal's legs to give power to the owner. The paws are inlaid with ivory with angled braces to support the seat.
