This liturgical type seat, reserved for bishops and some prelates, is characterized for having arms but no back. From the chapel of the Bishop’s Palace, this faldstool belonged to the bishops of Coimbra.
The top of the uprights are finished with knobs, the legs are curved with claw and ball feet and it presents a carved naturalistic decoration. The seat, at present covered in red silk, was upholstered in the same colour as the other religious paraments.
