Children's chairs are apparently quite difficult to make. It is said that a good child's chair calls
for a top craftsman. The chairs must retain the same proportions as their adult counterparts,
while maintaining a smaller scale in which fractions can make a large difference. In addition,
the "high chair" not only has to retain its correctness of proportion, but must be elongated,
while remaining in sympathy with the style of is period.
Provincial high chairs of this period are rare and command more than similar
