please help me identify this chair
Hi, Please help me identify this chair. I know my mother bought it at an auction in Ontario, Canada during the 1960's. She always called it the prayer chair because she said that you knelt on the seat and put your hands through the holes to pray, but I am thinking that she made that up as it certainly does not look like any of the prayer chairs I have seen on the internet. It has absolutely no identifying markings, stamps or labels.
Any tips, leads or links would be greatly appreciated.
