Whilst President of the College of West Africa in Monrovia, Liberia, from 1936 to 1938, Dr J.H. Furbay collected a chair, that is now in the American Museum of Natural History, New York, which has great similarities to the present example; (Sieber pg. 161). He reported that the chair was always carried by an attendant who accompanied the Chief to whom it belonged, for it was believed that a Chief without his chair was without his dignity.
