History of a Porters Chair:

A *porter's chair* was a type of chair used in medieval England and later France
Usually 
formed in a high-grade leather or red velvet ( newer styles
can include white, beige or just about any fabric ).

It was placed by the front door of an estate or home for use by a gatekeeper servant who was
 in charge of screening guests and visitors.
 This was necessary since the door knocker might not be heard throughout the house.


Since there were often cold breezes near a  front door, the chair was designed to envelop 
and keep the servant relatively warm in his task of remaining at the door for long periods.
 It is best described as a hollowed-out egg shape, very high and enclosed back, standing on end, 
four legs, with hand rests and sometimes with a 
notch for a lantern at the side, allowing the person to sink back into
 it out of the wind and await visitors' knocks.
