A very substantial hand-carved oak “miséricorde” church stall from the mid-19th century with adjustable seat.

The higher seat setting allowed clergy members to perch when their legs were tired during church services that lasted 2 to 3 hours.

In the modern home, this ecclesiastical antique would be perfectly suited as a statement hall chair for changing shoes and removing boots.

The chair is generally in very good antique condition with nominal old impression marks to the oak frame. Whilst the main body of the chair is original, over the years there have been various old repairs and replacement parts which have kept the chair in very good structural condition.

Seat height: 46 cm (18.1”) or 66 cm (26”)


  • H: 112cm (44.09in)
  • W: 79cm (31.10in)
  • D: 50cm (19.69in)
