A mahogany Chamber Horse or Exercise Chair, with pull-out step, 69cm wide 48cm deep 77cm high Exercise chairs such as this were sometimes called 'chamber-horses' because the users bounced up and down, exercising their legs in a way similar to riding a horse. They were advertised from as early as 1740 and were still popular in 1803 when the designer, Thomas Sheraton, illustrated one in his 'Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer's Drawing Book'. There are examples in Belton House, Lincolnshire and the Frederick Parker Collection.
