A new arrival.........................

Off to the Uk for a short dash to see our new grand-daughter Jessica Elizabeth who was born on the 12th July. We did try to arrange her arrival for the 13th on my birthday but she just couldn`t wait!!! I`m looking forward to taking some pictures for the blog!
Whilst I am away I will leave you with a guessing game......................................

What was this extravagant chair used for?

  1. Congrats on your grandchild!!! All I can think of is maybe it is a birthing chair...?

  2. Congratulations Shirley. Mine is now 8 weeks old. Is she the first? Slightly belated Happy Birthday, too.

  3. How can someone so young and pretty be a Grandmother? How on earth do you do it Shirley?
    I think your chair is actually the Louis XVth. Versailles snow sledge.

  4. Félicitations et joyeux anniversaire!

  5. Congratulations on your grand-daughter and belated birthday greetings. I agree with it being a birthing chair. When I had my daughter in 1984 I was given a birthing chair (not like this though) but because I am short my feet wouldn't reach the bits where you rest your feet to push! This looks like it has those feet rests too.

  6. Congratulations on the safe arrival of your little granddaughter, enjoy your visit.
    Take care
