The Queen’s Chair

The chair has the royal coat of arms on it’s back so I assumed it was the Queen’s even though it was a bit hard. Thinking about this further, since it was in an Elizabethan manor house, it may have belonged to Elizabeth the First as this was the room prepared should she visit, although it isn’t known if she ever did.

I enjoyed the light coming through the window as well as the view beyond it.
