136 Weighing Chair

This is one of the very first objects in the Cheltenham museum now 'The Wilson', it was first situated in one of cheltenhams private libraries and patrons could have themselves weighed for a small fee and would receive a little printed ticket with their wieght. None of these tickets seem to have survived. 

I am currently trying to shoehorn the chair into the final painting, I wonder what it might be weighing....
