Egyptian Virtual Museum : Childhood Chair

Childhood Chair

The small chair pictured above (only 14" wide) was made for a child, Tut'ankhamun, or Tut'ankhaton, as he was called in his boyhood. The wood is ebony, inlaid with ivory and the joints are riveted with either copper or bronze pins capped with gold. This and other childhood artifacts were found in Tut'ankhamun's tomb.
