Child's Chair of Tutankhamun Em-39210
This solid chair is an everyday piece of furniture that was found in the room called the "Antechamber" in the tomb of Tutankhamun. It has been suggested that the king used it when he was a child.

It is made of ebony inlaid with ivory and embellished with gold panels on the arms that are pictures of ibexes and desert plants. The joints are pinned with copper rivets covered with gold. The legs are in the form of lions' legs and terminate in lions' paws with ivory claws.

This chair is an excellent example of the construction of ordinary chairs in Egypt; the back is curved and slopes slightly backwards; it is supported by three vertical slats; the seat is made of five carved slats fastened to the frame with mortise and tenon joints.
