- A three-legged turned or 'thrown'
chair, which is just a stool with one leg extended to form a
simple back. Very few of these chairs survive, but they are very
common in art, suggesting that they were widely used. They could
be produced very easily on a pole lathe, using green wood, so
they would have been a cheap and easy form of seating.
