voyeuses (<chairs by function>, chairs (furniture forms), ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Chairs having a rather low seat and a padded top rail, designed to allow male spectators of card games to astride while resting their arms or elbows on the top rail. The term is derived from the French verb "voir," "to see." First made in France about 1740 and later in England. For a lower-seated variant of this chair designed for women, use "voyeuse á genoux."

German ..... Stuhl mit relativ niedrigem Sitz und gepolstertem Lehnabschlussbrett, der so konstruiert war, dass männliche Zuschauer eines Kartenspiels rittlings darauf sitzen konnten, während sie ihre Arme oder Ellenbogen auf dem Lehnabschlussbrett abstützten. Der Begriff leitet sich von dem französischen Verb „voir“, „sehen“ ab. Erstmals um 1740 in Frankreich, später auch in England hergestellt. Für eine niedrigere, für Frauen konzipierte Variante dieses Stuhls, siehe „Voyeuse à genoux".
