18th Century English Lambing Chair

18th Century English Lambing Chair

A rare and unusual English ‘lambing’ chair Used by shepherds in England during the 18th and 19th centuries waiting for their
ewes to give birth during lambing season. They would set the chairs by the fire to doze during the long cold wet winter months
If the birthing ewe would or could not keep their baby warm the shepherd would stow the baby lamb in the bottom compartment to keep it warm for the night!

What sets it apart?
